End of Summer

Edgewood, Nature, Summer

It’s the last week of summer.  September 23rd, 2015, will be the day when night and day are about the same length of time, also known as “autumnal equinox” (“equinox” means “equal night”).  From here on out, the days start to get shorter than the nights, and the temperature begin to cool down.  Changes in nature are noticeable.  Wild flowers are appearing everywhere, golden rods – one of the signs of the coming of autumn – included.  Grasses are seeding.  Berries, fruits, and nuts are forming.  Duck weed and algae on the pond surface excite duck hunters.  It’s time to clear out the path ways through the wood.
