Gray days - soothing days - the soft patter of rain washing the leaves one last time before their final descent displaying their true colors minus chlorophyll.  Greens are replaced by reds, rusts and yellows.  Soon the leaves will be a blanket protecting the fallen...

It's evening in October in Massachusetts.  It is 63 degrees and the moon is full.  We haven't had a frost yet so the Hydrangeas and the Black-Eyed Susans are in their full glory along with a host of late summer bloomers not yet touched with...
