End of August Views x

It may well be the end of August but the messy end of Hurricane Bertha that blew all over us last week just took the last vestiges of summer and tore them into rain storms! This tree is one of two or three along our school route that show Autumn first. Showing clearly today!
I say 'our school route' so easily, but actually it's only Jo's school route now. Matt won't be crossing the road with Mervyn, the fabulous patrol man, but carrying on down the main road, cutting through the university and down the little lane into Big School. So as we watch the conkers on our new-to-us chestnut tree grow and get ready to fall, this Fall will be a big one for one strawberry in particular.

Go, Matt!

Onward and upward, Matt! :)
Fall does seem to be on the way. I think I'm looking forward to it this year. God bless all!

Lots of changes all round then!

Hooray for Matt! The tree looks so lovely. Didn't know about your hurricane! Those storms do tend to strip away anything not nailed down :) Blessings as you begin a new school year! I love your back yard, esp. those lovely stone steps.

Go Matt, indeed!
Conkers. Wish we had them!
Did I tell you that both April and Kelli are homeschooling? Granny's the sub.

You have a lovely view along that long garden (but too much lawn for me! All that mowing!!)
Good luck to Matt going up to Big School.
