Fall slowly tiptoes into the Hampton Roads area, but the subtle footprints can be seen all over Montessori Acres. The days grow shorter, and the animals now eat their breakfasts just as the sun begins to peak over the horizon.
The gardens also reveal the transition into fall. Annual flowers fade and bear seeds for the next growing season. Perennial flowers tuck themselves away for the coming winter. Heat-loving vegetables say their farewells with a final trickle of produce. Newly planted fall and winter crops begin to flourish in the milder temperatures. Trees paint their leaves with brilliant colors before sending them to blanket their roots like a patchwork quilt.

The cooler temperatures are a welcome relief to our farm friends. The horses and donkeys frolic in the pastures and barnyard to celebrate their release from summer’s unbearable heat. Our miniature calf Miss Daisy playfully leaps and whirls about the sheep like a crisp autumn breeze. The poultry settle into their nests and roosts earlier as darkness hastens over the farm each evening.
