The Shift of Light

The light is shifting.  The shadows in the afternoon are becoming longer, and the days are softer, with an occasional chilly night.  I am loving these days, after the record heat this summer.  The pups are enjoying being outdoors most of the day.  I so enjoy having the windows open, bringing the sweet, fresh air in.  I've already noticed hints of tangy autumn scents on the breeze.

Purple and yellow flowers take center stage now; black eyed susans, goldenrod, and obedient plant among them.  The native muscadines are ripening, and every evening I gather a pocketful on my walk.  The pups sniff out the fallen ones, and enjoy their fair share of them too.  I'm hoping I'll soon have enough grapes to make a batch of jam with them.  This Sunday will be the last Market I'll participate in this year.  It looks like it's going to be a lovely day to spend outdoors.  Wishing you the loveliest of late summer days!

I was just thinking how the light and sounds have changed. But, you make it all sounds so sweet with your words.
