I have shown this scene many times on my blog, but it never ceases to amaze me. This is our view with our morning coffee this time of year. It is a dank, cold, drizzly, day. I still managed to get a walk in.
Most of this busy holiday weekend here has been just lovely.
The traffic crazy, the worst that I have ever heard of! One person said it took them 36 minutes to go 5 miles on our divided highway through the mountains! And the hiking sites were filled with complaints of congestion on the trails and people hiking not adequately prepared. On the top of our mountains there is snow and ice. Nothing to fool with this time of year.
I just think maybe the world is closing in on so many people and they are looking to nature for some relief. I feel very blessed to live here and be in nature most days.
The last rose of summer? I told you back when they started blooming, they will go until a hard freeze gets them. We have had frosts, but they are still going.
On my walk today I found a wooly bear caterpillar now what is he predicting for the winter??
Looks like a mild start a harsh ending. Who knows if all these predictors are correct? We have so many acorns this year more than I have seen in many many years. And the old farmer's Almanac (which we read cover to cover. It's hanging in the bathroom lol) says a harsh winter. We shall see!
Have a great week!
