The weather has officially changed from Summer to Autumn. The days are getting shorter, the breeze is getting cooler and the leaves are starting to make their graceful journey to the lawn. Even my Oak tree has figured it out. A little history on the Oak. In the 5 years that we’ve lived here, the Oak tree never turned color and lost it’s leaves in the fall, rather it would hold the green leaves all winter long and then lose them in Spring. We have always scratched our heads and wondered “what’s wrong with that tree – is it a hybrid Oak that’s on a different schedule?” Well of the 5 years, this year it’s decided to do what should be natural – turn color and drop it’s beautiful leaves. This can only mean 1 thing…we’re really having an autumn this year.
My garden has finally finished producing and is waiting for it’s final clean up before the long winter hits. Hopefully it will all happen by the end of the week. So back to Autumn. Today the weather was cool and windy and called for a warm hearty soup. Below is the adhoc recipe for what turned out to be a wonderfully tasty soup. I hope you enjoy!
