We love our Wegman's, but still wish for TJ's. The nearest is only about 50 miles away though, close enough if I want to plan ahead.

The dogwoods are in full glory right now, all shades of orange, maroon and bronze. Sassafras is beginning to turn as is the oakleaf hydrangea.

linrose,

Your dogwoods seem to have more varieties of colors than mine do...mine seem to stay pretty much in the wine color.

Now, sassafras is famous for its fall colors (at least in my mind)...and mine is finally getting almost as tall as I am...so, next year and in the coming years, it should make its presence known! I'd like to get more. (..and more dogwood--I have more than a dozen...and more black gum...and more... Every year our fall color will improve as will benefits for wildlife as each of these mature and produce berries.)

I hope the great blue herons made up and are on speaking terms again.

I love the Canadian geese in flight...are they what you are calling "CAGEs"? What are GREGs?

Oh, bird names are referred to by the first two letters of first and last name, for example, Peregrine Falcon is a Pefa. So can you figure out those others?
