Poor Will’s Almanack for the final week of late summer, in the final week of the Windfall Apple Moon, the second week of the sun in Virgo, the forty-first week of the year in nature.....
when more and more cornfields become dusky brown;
when patches of gold show on the Osage and cottonwoods and poplars and maples and white mulberry trees,
when buckeye and black walnut trees are shedding.
when kisses of scarlet appear on creeper and poison ivy;
when panicled dogwood has its first white berries; when dogbane pods turn red;
