Autumn is In the Air

Autumn seems to be bringing itself to the deep south and here in central Texas. This morning after a cool front came through our area the morning temperature was a nice 52 degrees F.

Since then I now cover the feed at night and have a light on out there that I can see from my kitchen window..
