1st Day of Fall

fall2016Feels like it is still Summer LOL.

However, the mornings have been pleasant. Coffee and breakfast are better out on the patio. We get to see hummingbird ‘dog fights’ at our feeders and they often use us to shake an opponent’s dive bomb maneuvers. Biggest thrill lately was seeing a Baltimore Oriole hit the feeder perch….he was toooooo fast for us to get a photograph but what a memory.

We have been in the ‘new house’ for just over 6 months. Thanks to Carolyn Schlueter’s gift of a bluebird box, we have seen 3 broods of blue birds fledged. We have just about finished our house ‘improvements’– we have one more raised garden (4x8x2 or 64 cubic feet worth) to build. Looking forward to the heat to lessen and the leaves turning. Tons of hardwoods here and with all the rain……it should be a real color explosion. Elk at Lone Elk Park are getting active and the turkeys are starting to flock up (see lead in photo).

Halloween is just around the corner, then Thanksgiving– sandwich in duck season and Christmas between now and New Year’s.

Stay tuned– we have a big (for us anyway) announcement coming in November.

Soon as it cools down– we hope to get with the photography ‘program’.
