People don’t believe me when I tell them Winter is coming. Perhaps they don’t realize how short the warm season is here in Maine. And to think, friends of mine who live up in Rangeley and Jackman have an even shorter warm season – about two seeks shorter. I overheard a conversation just last night where one of my buddies was talking about how the leaves are changing in Jackman. It’s no joke either because I’ve been noticing some of the same here where we live. Leaves falling all over the place. And we even have a Red Maple tree that’s in the midst of its full change over. I just took a picture of it.
Now, it’s not like we’re in the middle of Autumn or anything. The leaves are still green all over the place.
But I will tell you that it was so chilly last night that I thought I was going to have to make a fire in the wood stove or get something going in the pellet stove. The crisp, cool air certainly is welcome though. I thrive in the cooler temperatures.
Raspberry bushes are beginning to change.
I wonder how much longer Summer will last. I think the most noticeable changes are in the nighttime temperatures. Things go from the high 70s during the day, down to the low 50s at night. When things get down to the 40s, I think I’ll put my dancing shoes back on.
Oh yeah, I took this neat picture as I was outside grabbing the one of that Maple tree. Just throwing this in there for you.
