Coffee Muses From a Chilly Porch

  1. I’ve seen a couple of Japanese maples beginning to turn, and a bit of bungundy on Bradford pears. Some of the dry cypress have turned, too – there will be drifts of needles soon.

    The coots and grebes suddenly are here. I’ve heard reports of geese flying over on the east side of the bay, too – Anahuac and such. Last night, we had the ritual first-turning-on-of-the-heater, with the accompanying shrill panic of the smoke alarm, running of the cat and frantic fanning of the homeowner, trying to get the stupid thing to stop. We’re ready for autumn over here!

    1. When we were at the Nash Prairie there was a group of six sandhill cranes flying over as we collected seeds. My water oaks and pecans have been dropping leaves for a while now…But I think it’s more from being dry than from the weather.

      My morning coffee muse just ran to a single cup on the back porch. Funny the difference a day makes in how it feels on the backporch…
