Season of Change

Harvest weather lore, bird migration, Fall veggies

Below information from The Old Farmer's Almanac


When the Julian calendar bumped October (from the Latin octo, for eight)

from eighth to tenth in the month order, numerous attempts were made to

rename the month after various Romans, but “October” stuck.

Perhaps it seems like bad luck to fiddle with the name of such a beautiful time

of year. “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,” Keats called it—a luminous

month of fall foliage, bright orange pumpkins, and a bittersweet sense of

change.

Harvest time is abundant with weather lore:

• If autumn leaves are slow to fall, a cold winter is in store.

• Onion and apple skins, corn husks, and nutshells are traditional indicators:

the thicker the exterior, the harsher the winter.

• And be sure to notice migrating hawks:


Hawks flying high mean a clear sky.


When they fly low, prepare for a blow.








I believe there is a daily need for one to
be reminded to live a life full of hope.
 Favorite quotations can be inspirational
positive reinforcement, a source of encouragement,
and great reminders.



Friendship

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be.
- Douglas Pagels


My best friend is the one who brings
out the best in me.
- Henry Ford


A single rose can be my garden...
a single friend, my world.
- Leo Buscaglia



"You have within you the capacity to heal. 

Yourself.  Your family and friends.  Perhaps perfect

strangers.  No, not the "power to heal," but the ability

to make things right, change attitudes, right a wrong

and it is all done through healing love."  

- Bob Perks









These pictures I post are not to make one sad - rather to take you back
in time to your childhood or a Sunday drive that stirred good memories
and when life seemed somewhat simple but yet maybe difficult? They make
me feel appreciative to all the fine things we have today.
