Grey skies, wind and rain, and cool temperatures greeted us as we arrived to take out the docks for the winter and pull the lake water lines (so that the pipes don’t freeze over the winter). Last week the trees were just beginning to exhibit some color and the water was still warm enough that it wasn’t too unpleasant swimming out to drag in the foot valve for the water line. We were glad to have this job accomplished as the weather this week continued to turn even colder.
I’m trying to keep the warmth of summer in my mind this week as I paint summer blooms along the driveway. I’m hoping for some nice indian summer weather!!!
