In Augusta,GA you can tell that the Mr.. Winter is lurking around the corner with the, temperature dropping and the winds sharp as razors. Most of the tree have shed their beautiful leaves. It is amazing to watching trees, to often we never pay attention to the trees. Trees will start in the spring by getting little buds on their limbs, that turn in leaves or flowers. Trees give us shade when the heat outside becomes unbearable, the shield our houses from the summer heat. In the autumn of their life cycle they give us a spectacular show of awesome colors that we go goggle eye over, people get their cameras out and begin clicking away.
Then Mr.Winter pops it head out, drops snow on us and temperature drop to freezing levels, branches have ice on them and so do the roads, walk ways. People in the north have to shovel snow off their drive way in order to get there cars out to go to work
Before Mr. Winter come most towns and cities have a Christmas Parade. The little town of Guyton,GA were are son lives has one and we happen to be there during the parade a couple of years ago.
So I want to start the season post with the Guyton Parade.
This is a snow storm which turned to Ice later that day while we where at Lake Erie visiting friends.
We move from chilly ice and snow to the season before all the Burrr ice, to autumn were the leaves are so stunning.
Summer time when everyone gets hot or become water ducks. Kids are out of school and families go on vacations.
Now we have the season most people like when all the flowers bloom, fresh vegetables grow and the weather is great.
We were staying at our son’s while I was recovering from shoulder surgery, I would go into town stop at Lowe’s pick up a couple of tomato plants. Then go into town and pick up some more tomato plants until our son said, “I’ve never seen so many tomatoes.” We had so many tomatoes that he had to give many away, to most of his friends. We caned or froze as many as we could. Some times I go a little over board. It was all fun!
