Almost Fall

I think it's Fall but here in the high desert it still feels quite toasty in the afternoon to us.

However, every morning mom opens the balcony for us and we breath in the lovely Fall morning smells. Lately, it's been in the low 50's in the morning and high 70's in the afternoon but during the week to come Mom says the weather man thinks it may get down to the low 70's and if we are lucky there might be some rain. We need lots and lots of rain and then lots and lots of snow so our mom will be happy during the winter and be able to ski nearby.


Remember the pictures of the baby doves this summer? If not, this is their neighborhood. Their tree was just to the south-west of this picture. This is the quad where there is kind of a park and lots of trees at our apartment complex. The trees are turning from green to yellowish and pretty soon to orangish then to redish then to brownish and then they will fall off the trees. I think that's why it's called "fall".

We all hope you have a wonderful week to come.

You are very lucky to get to watch the leaves turn color and fall! Ours stay pretty much the same all year.

I love this time of the year. It's fun to whap the leaves when they fall off the trees and there are lots of good smells everywhere!

We were amazed to hear that we could possibly encounter a FRESH variety of catnip?! OH my! We are going to have to find that and try that because we have never had that before... it sounds purrrrrrfectly awesome!
