Here it is the 29th of September. How DID that happen? Time has flown this year, no doubt about it!
Here in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana we are enjoying spectacular weather. No hard killing frost, as yet. Not quite a record, but unusual all the same. The flowers are enjoying 80 degree daytime temps.. The nights are still in the upper 40′s. We had quite a bit a rain at the end of Aug. and beginning of Sept., so the trees and grounds have set themselves up for a glorious display of Autumn colors. Golds, and Bronzes, Yellows and Oranges are taking over the tree tops and shrubbery. In the High Country, the Larch is beginning it’s annual display of coppery needles. This is a marvelous time to walk the Lee Metcalf or Teller Wildlife Refuges. Both are equidistant from my little Bed and Breakfast. About 15 mins. of driving time will have you out of the car and strolling along the Bitterroot River. The Apple Days annual harvest festival is next week, in Hamilton. Anything Apple will delight your palate. From pies to cider. Why not come join the fun?
