A bright, cool day. Fall’s colors are simplifying: red of sumac, yellow of bittersweet. Blue jays, cardinals, and waxwings are busy in the trees.
We’re gathering the last pumpkins, and planning a new flowerbed for spring.
Multiflora roses are considered an invasive species in New Hampshire, but they sure are pretty when they bloom.
Especially in the evening, just as our vision becomes useless, the scent of lilacs seems to run riot in the air, saturating the empty night with sweetness.
