Fall Reflection

For me fall is a time for reflection.
Things in nature begin to wind down,
people begin to hunker down for the winter
at least in the Northern Hemisphere.

It is dark now by 5:30 PM here in Nova Scotia,
and not too far down the road that will change to 4:30.

We will be getting the garden ready/prepared for winter.....
reminds me I have to find a door to fit the garden shed,
get the snow tires put on the car,
call the snow-removal guy to make sure he will clear the driveway 
all winter long,
call the tree-guy to see if he can take down two birches
that may not be able to withstand any stormy winter,
oh right! Ron needs a new winter coat
so we will be searching high and low for one that suits him.

See? Lots on which to reflect before our winter arrives.

How about you guys? What do you have to do to get ready for winter?

Took this yesterday at Lake Banook in Graham's Grove Park in Dartmouth.


  1. I feel the same way this time of year, Jim, especially as the year comes to an end. Garden cleanup is one of my main chores before I settle down for a long winter's rest :)

  2. Just got back from Manitoba where we spent Halloween. The weather's been good here but someone keeps mentioning that snow is coming! Bummer.


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
