Autumn Arrives on the North Fork

The ospreys have gone...

many of the grapes have been harvested and are slowly making their way to become good North Fork wine.  The leaves have colored and are beginning to fall, the pumpkins have arrived in time for Thanksgiving pie.  Most of the striped bass have rounded Montauk Point on their southerly migration.  It's time to bring the kayak up from the beach and put the storm windows back on our old house.   Wood is needed for the fireplace and some of the potted plants should be brought inside.   Time to "button up" for winter.

The large beige "cheese" pumpkin makes the finest pies.

  Most of our farm stands are more humble than this one.  We come here for the duck they carry from Crescent Duck Farm in Aquebogue.

"The Heavens are Telling... "

  The approaching dawn once again found me, coffee in hand down by the bay standing in the lightest of air with a hint of salt in it.  As sunrise drew near, clouds like the curtains of heaven slowly changed from crimson to the soft golds and blue of early morning.  The music of Haydn's "Creation" playing in my mind described so beautifully the sky that was opening before me...

"The heavens are telling the glory of God,
The wonders of his work displays the firmament"

Based on Psalms 19.1
