The leaves are starting to change. The maples are already changing. The maple by the barn is near peak. I've already started to rake leaves and put them in the compost pile. The temperatures are steadily falling. We'll see frosts in a few week.
I finished the puffin decoy. Overall, I am pretty happy with it. The hardest part was the bill. I need to give it a coat of wax or a coat of epoxy. On to the next project!
