Driving home yesterday morning I realized where our autumns hide — Virginia! Nothing like the upper Midwest, mind you, but the colors there, even this late in the season, far outshine anything we get in NC. I also realized how fun it is to drive behind a tractor trailer carrying a harvested cotton “module“… as if a giant stuffed bear was travelling ahead of me, unbeknownst to him that his stuffing was gradually coming out in little snowy poofs along the highway! (Four-plus hours alone in the car requires a lot of personal entertainment.)
This floral skeleton is from our yard. A pretty little star, don’t you think?
