Day and night are now nearly 12 hours each as the impending equinox changes the calendar officially to the autumn season. The sun is rising due east and is setting due west. Our myrtle trees are already coloring up and dropping their leaves, while dogwood and red maple are showing noticeable tint. It's time to sit back with a glass of fresh apple cider and take in the wonder of God's creation. Soon enough we'll be pulling jars of canned produce out of the pantry to supplement what little fresh we can find as the weeks get colder.
