Rainbows Will Never Be the Same Again

Last weekend the Dogtor snapped a pic of Fray in front of a double rainbow. (The second one is so faint it didn't come across in the photo.) I wonder how many years it will take before we ever look at a rainbow and don't say: All the way!

Other weekend activities included a pumpkin patch visit and walk around Mile 'Round Woods.

We're expecting a couple of inches of rain today. The leaves are coming down. The cats are hunkering. The chickens are in. The dogs are curled up in the garage. It's the kind of weather that makes you think about hot soup.

This part of fall is winter's red carpet. I heard someone say last week that when you see a bunch of fuzzy caterpillars (very scientific), a hard winter is ahead. I always think of these caterpillars - and they are everywhere this year - as Atilla the Hun. They have all these serious looking pipecleaner projectiles...

Needless to say, the houselions aren't fazed. Dietary indiscretion abounds.


  1. I really like fray's stance in the scare crow pic. Her hair is like that baby doll you crank the arm and the pony tail grows higher. {we probably begged rhombi for it}. Love my pretty fall VMNT leaves. Missing you guys and wishing we could get up there to enjoy the leaves with you. xoxoxo

  2. I don't think Gabe has ever seen a rainbow! Must put that on the to-do list. Wish we had a wide open vista like you, but we'll keep our eyes peeled nonetheless. Enjoy Vermont fall. Sounds delightful (except for the flying squirrels entombed in the walls!). : )
