Oh dear, everyone seems to be having such a beautiful fall....
except us folks here on Hill Top. I have just loved seeing
all the gorgeous fall pictures on so many of the blogs I follow.
So, this morning, after the rain stopped for awhile,
Millie and I headed out to see what we could find.
We were in search of fall! I jammed the little folded-up umbrella
into one of the big pockets in my coat, hung my camera
on my shoulder, and we were off.
And, we had just the loveliest time out exploring every nook
and cranny in those woods. It really was a perfect time to go out looking,
even if we hadn't found a single pretty leaf.
Millie did a lot of looking, and listening, and smelling.
She's perfect for being out in the woods with, for she doesn't bark
and frighten off the wild critters. I like quietness in the woods.
I usually don't talk when we are out and about.
I also like that Millie is always out ahead of me,
still in my sight, but not underfoot.
Can you see what Millie saw here? She didn't run them away
like she does sometimes. She did give a big buck a quick chase.
He was a beauty, but I didn't get a picture of him.
I thought the pond was lovely following last night's rain.
The Great Blue Heron that we often see here,
was no where to be fouind today.
How about this for a beautiful fall arrangement?
Mother Nature did it. She really is the best!
So, that's it ~ our picture show for Fall 2019.
The colors may get better over the next several days, or they may not.
But, Millie and I found what we had come for.
My picture files are full of lots better from previous years,
but this is the way it is today, and we are thankful
for another beautiful fall.
"Around me the trees
stir in their leaves
and call out, "Stay awhile."
The light flows from their branches.
And they call again, "It's
simple," they say,
"and you too have come into the world to do this,
to go easy, to be filled
with light, and to shine."
