Couldn’t Stay Inside

September 2, 2010

Yesterday I couldn’t stay inside. It was a brilliant, breezy day with bright sunshine and puffy clouds. Fall is definitely in the air.

We drove to my favorite city park and I took over a hundred pictures. Here are a few of them.

Canada Geese were everywhere

This one seemed to be warning us to stay away

One of many different grass varieties along the water

Count on me to find an old dead branch, just hanging out over the water

Ornamental cherries

The road back home

After exploring places to shoot pictures, we stopped at my 95-year-old aunt’s to visit with her for a bit. She has called every single day wanting to know when we were coming. Talk about guilt. When we showed up she said she had prayed yesterday morning that we would come. I laughed and said “Your prayers are answered!”

    Those naughty geese! We send them south every autumn as goodwill ambassadors, and what do they get up to? Intimidation, snootiness, and downright unneighbourliness! We’ll give them a talking to when they return next spring – not that it will make much of a difference – they’re “Canada” geese – known for their quirkiness, but quite loveable, really.

    Autumn can be a good time for light the sun is at a postion where its nit blinding everything too much and taking out coulure,indeed there can be a golden glow!

    Not fair, Martha. You have the weather we want – still sweltering up here in the hinterlands. Looks like you’ve got our birds, too…LOL. Btw, thank you for not calling them ‘canadian’ geese. : )

    Beautiful photos, you do live in a lovely part of your country. Here it is the start of a very late spring, blossoms and daffodils finally starting to bloom, but the weather hasn’t realised it is meant to be warming up! The temperature here is 4 deg.C at present!

    I love the photos– a journal entry for an afternoon. I’m taken by the onevof the interwoven branches. It seems like a study for a quilt or an etching.

I love getting your comments, so please don't be shy! Your feedback is valued.
