Welcome to the home page of
Dorcas Annette Walker
COME ON IN AND BROWSE AROUND.
Cool nights bringing relief from hot humid days has arrived in the mountains of Tennessee signaling the changing of summer into autumn. The veggie garden is mainly gone with a few ripe tomatoes left to pick while harvesting pumpkins and squash. It's the time of year for me to finally to catch up on trimming hedge rows and save seeds for next year between continued long days of canning in the kitchen. It's a joy watching the pantry and freezer fill up for the winter after all the long hours spent of hard work.
Most of the summer flowers are gone except for a few late roses. Meanwhile the Mexican sunflowers, large sunflowers, and marigolds flaunt their bright colors as purple, yellow, and white daisies and the goldenrod begins to bloom. Soon the leaves all over the mountain will turn multi colors in one last burst of brilliant color as the temperature drops to freezing.
Squirrels racing around hoarding nuts, birds migrating south, along with chilly windy days reminds me to hurry and finish last minute outdoor chores. This is the time of year of the start of cozy fires on frosty mornings, wood smoke curlingup in the air, and leaves drifting downward. Before you know it the busy holiday season rush will be upon us. So every chance I get I stop and take a short break out on the front porch swing savoring the warmth of the sun one more time.
