Autumn came swiftly this weekend. Early yesterday morning we went to the farmers’ market, winter jackets drawn up tight below our chins. Wind blown sleet and rain drove everyone to cover, where we commiserated with the already frozen vendors.
Then home to more sleet.
Overnight we had our first freeze, which ended the season for the morning glories. This year we enjoyed an abundance!
This afternoon I ventured out again. The woods were lovely, the rain and sleet softly muting the colors.
The day featured snow showers and squalls, and moments of brilliant sun. Stormy weather often creates dramatic skies over the lake and Adirondacks. Today I did not tarry long by the lake. Although the scene was dramatic and rapidly changing, the wind was biting, so too soon I headed home.
