Every August the heron returns to the duck pond and every August I try to capture him with my camera. As you can guess, I have just the phone on me whenever he's around. He plays hide and seek, pretends to be a duck or goose and I enjoy his beauty. He seems to enjoy the attention we give him when we stop to stare-he waits a few seconds right when the photo is about to be taken then flies off looking like a prehistoric animal.
This groundhog was quite funny on our walk. He saw us approaching and scrambled to jump into one of his many holes and missed. Oh the grumbling, grunting, and low pitched squabbling sounds he made. We were lucky to snap this photo and he was a little dazed after knocking himself in his head. Silly little guy!
The fall changes are upon us! I am seeing fallen leaves on the road side. The angle of the setting sun is gentle,soft and sweet. The mornings are dark and the evenings are losing daylight. I do love this time of year. Full of promise.
These past few weeks have been the busiest ever, so much so that September is looking mighty fine as a do nothing month. Well, you know I won't do nothing...maybe I just won't be moving my children. A quiet schedule will fall upon me. Our daughter has been visiting before her new job starts so I'm enjoying the last few days of her company this coming week.
While out and about yesterday, I spied these yellow mums and bought them for my husband who adores yellow. Out of all the colors that flowers can come in, yellow is low on my list. I am drawn to purples, oranges, reds, pinks and blues. In the spirit of giving, I bypassed my favorite shades for his and I think he was quite happy!
