Spiders are staking their claims. You can tell the kids don't use the play fort anymore. This is a huge web that went up about a week ago. No critters in it that I've seen, but it catches the breeze and all kinds of leaves. That must've been one big and hungry spider. Eeee!
The crabapples are starting to turn red! In past years, I would pay the boys $1 per half-bag of crabapples picked off the tree, because they (the fruits) got so messy. This is a good harvest, especially since I really pruned it well last year. Now it's not so messy, and I won't pay for the cleanup. I actually like the winter birds that hang out for a nosh. And I might make another batch of crabapple jelly this year.
No leaves turning color on our property yet. Can't wait for the red maple out front to start turning. It's just about six feet tall now, and every year it gets more vibrant.
