A little fall here...a little fall there.

After a good rain overnight it had cooled off nicely this morning. The kitties slept in a bit as the morning breeze kept them comfy in their chosen beds. The retired-guy had been working on something late and left tools on the table overnight. It never fails to amaze me how a cat can find comfort amongst a pile of junk but our oldest, Sierra, does just that.

                                                            Looks comfy, huh?

The coming fall is showing it's colours now.

The summer blooms are hanging on for dear life 
                                                  in the last of the hot summer sun.
The sumac trees are changing colours.

The birds seem rather hungry or are they just anticipating a long cold winter not far off.
Are they 'plumping up' already?

These two arrived early this morning before I was even able to fill the feeders. I gave them some 9 grain bread and they were very happy with that...thank you.
I hope they stick around all fall and winter so I can take care of them.
And tell 100 of their friends.

These trees will soon be ablaze with colour.

We are surrounded by maple trees.  :)) Ain't life grand!

hugs, Deb


  1. I can't wait to see your trees in a month or so!

  2. Lovely photos ! The rains have gone around us again and it is very dry here and still humid , hoping for rain tomorrow and cooler temps . Our sumac trees are changing to they are interesting looking trees I do like them . Silly kitty snoozing on the tools . Hope the birdies there tell all their friends of the wonderful lady who feeds them goodies there and they come to feast ! Our birds are also feasting like mad I think they may know something about the weather that even the weather people don't know about lol ! Thanks for sharing , Have a good day !

  3. What a lovely peaceful post, Deb...
    I enjoyed it very much!
    Enjoy your week...
    Linda :o)

  4. Sierra has claimed the tools as her own and now she must do all the work. That's the rule. This has been the only dreadfully hot week of the whole summer here and it seems so strange to have July weather while the sumacs are turning colour and the birch leaves are falling. The chickens have started their fall molt and are eating twice as much food to plump up for winter, so fall must really be on it's way.

  5. Hi Deb, fall will soon be here and I'm sure those little birdies will stick around if you keep feeding them such delectable offerings. I miss seeing the cats getting comfy but Kai sure knows how. How is little Kane?..Happy Tuesday..Judy

  6. Ah! Autumn..September....My most flavourite time
    of the year...
    As the great Nat King Cole would say....
    The falling leaves drift past my window..
    The falling leaves of red and gold..
    I see your lips, the summer kisses..
    The sun~burnt hands l used to hold..!

    And, a little in French....
    C'est une chanson, qui nous ressemble..
    Toi tu m'aimais et je t'aimais..
    Nous vivions tours, les deux enssemble...(and so on...lovely).

  7. Aren't cats funny! Sleeping on a pile of tools! I can't imagine how beautiful your place will be when all those maples leaves change color. Can't wait to see the pictures.

  8. Oh sweet Sierra.....Don't you just love the first signs of colorful Autumn? We just long for that...and cooler weather! It's simply the most perfect time of year! Lovely post Deb!

  9. Aah yes, fall...signs of it here too except for the temperatures in the upper 80s! I'm so ready for the beautiful colours and heartwarming recipes, XOXO

  10. Yea, Deb, when life's grand it is grand indeed. That sumac leave is extraordinary. What a wonderful colour!

  11. We've had temps 15 degrees (F) higher than average, and this weekend they are supposed to be 15 degrees below. The cats don't seem to care...weird.
