Our family here at 3Beeze has had quite a run of unexpected events through the month of September. These events took us away from the comfort of our little homestead and into the Big City for a few weeks. While away from our country home Fall happened. It was quite a surprise. We left with green leaves on our trees and 80 degree temperatures. The arrival back home was in the dark of night with a gigantic harvest moon to guide our way. Couldn't have asked for a more picturesque welcome back to the country. With only the silver moonlight to see by, everything was bathed in silver and grey, so the change in color of the trees leaves wasn't noticed till morning. As I stood at the kitchen window the next morning with my cuppa joe in hand watching the sun rise on the clucks coup I noticed that our fire pit area was covered in leaves. This brought my eyes to the trees - to my surprise they were painted with bright color. Then the realization set in, while away in the City our Fall season had happened. Another nice welcome home. I tried to appreciate the different beauty that the City had to offer and in it's own "city" way it did offer up some pretty sights. However nothing holds a candle to the beauty that is offered up by the rolling hills, open spaces, blue clear sky and groves of trees the country has to offer. Not to mention the sounds and smells are much nicer too. Instead of street lights shinning in the window at night it's the moon light. Instead of sirens screaming in the night it is the distant howl of a coyote or the soft hoot of an owl. No exhaust to smell, only clean fresh air and the smell of earth. Yes, I am one happy girl to be back home in the country.
