Lancaster County Harvest Time
A Tale of Changing Seasons at the Harvest Moon Bed & Breakfast...

So, there comes a time of the year where you have to say... it's time for a change. You know, the end of winter where the mud is everywhere and the threat of one last snow storm makes you wild. Or when fall has dropped all of it's leaves and there is nothing outside except for murky skies and barren trees.

Well, for me personally, not one of them is all that awful, I always enjoy a great March snow storm or the warmth of a late spring day (minus the humidity) while tending to the garden. However, the one that seems to be my least favorite is the tail end of summer.

So as I write this, I am waiting patiently for the beginning of fall, yet summer has it's grips on these last couple of weeks within it's season. Lady Summer refuses to relinquish it's grip. Although the temps have cooled down, the humidity has forced the continued use of air conditioners here at the Harvest Moon Bed and Breakfast.

Well, that is all right... the saving grace is that there is only a couple of weeks left! The temperatures will eventually drop and snow will be ours before the year runs out.

So, if you have read any of my posts in the past, you will notice that I am a fan of fall! Actually this time of year is my favorite from September till February of March, (depending on how much mud is around).

And leaving you today, I send to you a link to one of my favorite postings of all, Titled "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" It really is for me and I can't wait.

Below is a list of things that are going on from now through the end of the year, and stay tuned for all the things we (both the Harvest Moon and Lancaster Count ) have for the Holidays in a post soon to come!
