I grew up in the Winton area, graduated from Winton Grammar School in 1952. I belong to the Winton Historical Society and the Merced County Genealogical Society.
I am now retired from the County of Merced.
Fall is finally here. I love the colored leaves and I enjoy raking them. I love this time of year, almost as good as spring.
Last Thursday morning as I was leaving Bible Study, I noticed how beautiful the trees looked. We just had a nice rain the night before and the leaves looked so bright and clean.
Even the crooked tree is pretty. I'm glad they let it grow.
The new Iris plants are coming along nicely. I hope they all bloom come April and May.
The lilac bush is confused though. Here is the "Sensation" Lilac, putting out some flowers. I guess the weather feels like spring. I hope to have some blooms next year.
