We have definitely taken a step towards autumn, the tulip popular trees have started turning yellow/brown - not very pretty but a sure sign of the changing seasons. The other sure signs are the horde of hummingbirds have started their migration south. There are still a couple that are coming in but nothing like the two dozen we had a couple of weeks ago and the blue jays have returned. I am definitely looking forward to the slower pace of autumn and winter this year.
One advantage to the length between my posts is that I have a lot of stitching to show in each post. So here is my "lot of stitching".
