October again

"Listen!  the wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves,
We have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!"
-  Humbert Wolfe 
Our 48 acres have been offering up some lovely crisp mornings this month.  The days more often than not turn bright and sunny.  And the Sunsets!!  
Walkabouts. Photographs.  
David, as you may already know, is my Sky Man. He takes beautiful photos of all sorts of things (notably birds) but something magical happens when he points his lens at the sky. Colours, clouds, sun dogs, shades of blue... 
here's one from the other night.

 If you're so inclined, all of these photos appear much larger with a click of your mouse or a tap of your finger. 


This particular morning it felt like winter had come

and then ....  oh my.  Too lovely for words.

See these guys to the left here.  I never know just where on the creek they'll be, but one of these mornings I will approach softly enough not to disturb our little flock of fall ducks.  They don't go far but I don't like to startle them. 

It's Sunday.  4:30 in the afternoon. Time to start a fire in the cook stove, think about dinner and winding down, not that we've been all that wound up.
Thanks as always for dropping by.  Till next time.
