More sure signs of fall - the chicadees have nearly cleaned out the sunflower seeds:
And the deer are moving through our area again. These three are all "Don't mind us, we're just here to eat the grass" but I'm not fooled - I've seen the hoofprints in the garden! Not that there's anything much left to worry about, the only things still alive are the carrots, chard & kale that I plan to overwinter. Somehow the deer never seem to get too excited about those things.
