Why they call it Fall

Apparently we are catching the remnants of a typhoon.

This big poplar out in the pasture was our first casualty.

It took out part of our fence as it fell, so we had to do a little creative mending to close the gap for now.

The sheep are enjoying the leaves that are still somewhat green, but that’s going to be  a lot of cleanup!

Closer to the house, we lost one trunk of a big ornamental cherry.

That’s the damage so far. the second wave is supposed to hit this afternoon-evening. More rain. More high winds.

Fun fun fun.

In other news, Autumn’s End is coming along. One sleeve done.

Sleeve one was a trial run for gauge and learning the chart- made a couple mistakes along the way, but came out well in the end.

Onward to sleeve #2!

    Nothing that big has fallen here, but the sheep are happy with maple leaves and fir branchlets to munch on. Autumn’s End is lovely!

    P.S. I wish there was a way to be notified about any follow-up comments; I never think to come back and look!
