This week I’ve experienced a distinct feeling of fall at Coppertop. With one month of summer remaining, change is in the air. The alder and maple trees have begun their slow leaf drop, and the rake has emerged from the garden shed. The polka-dotted bigleaf maple leaves are an amusing surprise.
Thinking of my amazing nephew, Danny, today as he throws his annual home-brew party! Wish we could be there to celebrate the unveiling of his yummy, new creations. I suppose it’s in Danny’s honor that my hop vines have never looked more verdant than they do today!
