Fall's Here

Yes, even though it's supposed to be in the 80's today, we see definite signs that the season is changing. One of the neat things this time of year is the butterfly migration. Monarchs, of course, but there are many other types of butterfly, large & small. Monarch butterflies are why I try to leave the milkweeds standing when I mow the horse pasture.

Another sign of fall - the sumac has started to change. Sumac changes color early and the leaves turn a brilliant red. The red will soon be enhanced by Virginia creeper and poison ivy, and we'll start seeing yellow on the elms and maples and Osage orange. Another thing to watch for on the sumac is stripped bark - caused by bucks rubbing their antlers against the whippy stalks.

October activities in Warrensburg & the surrounding area include the Chautauqua next weekend (see and UCM Homecoming on 10/20. Here's an idea - come to Warrensburg on the 20th, see the parade, then head for Warsaw's Heritage Days. We're full for both the Chautauqua and Homecoming, but have plenty of openings the rest of the month - come enjoy the back 40, who knows what you'll see!
