We received some much needed rain the past couple of days… perhaps an understatment. With all the wind and rain, the trees have now shed a majority of their leaves. The difference between today and a few days ago is amazing. Also amazing is the temperature… it has been so warm lately that we’ve only worn our coats a handful of times this season. It helps with the heating bills at least. Certainly the colder weather is coming, and I welcome that in a strange sort of seasonal embrace. I think without the different seasons, life would be too much the same for me. Although I look forward to the opportunity to travel more in the years ahead, somehow I hope to always experience the changing seasons in life.
A lone Mallard drake stopped at the pond during the heaviest of the rain. He floated this way and that, keeping a wary eye out. As soon as the rain stopped, he continued on his way.
