Socks

Today's phenology event is:  Socks.   May not sound like one, but... today is the first day since spring that I have had to wear socks all day (in this country).  I am less than thrilled about it.  Winds from the north brought yesterday the disturbing smell of the north woods burning, and today a distinct chill.  The kind of chill that doesn't abide sandals.

And in case the weather wasn't enough to make me realize what was coming our way, I got hit over the head with it at Ace Hardware this morning.  In addition to mums, their outside display area now contains shelves and shelves of... you guessed it... pumpkins!  We must actively try to remember that we're still over 2 week away from October, people...
