Odds and Ends
I don’t think we will have a very colorful Fall in Michigan this year. The unseasonably hot, dry spell we had in September caused many of the leaves to shrivel up and drop, and now rain has moved in. We are now almost halfway through October, and we still have not had a killing frost, which always seems to make the colors pop.
Went to water my flowers the other day, and found something was blocking the spout of the waterer. Was horrified to find it was a tree frog who had been washed right to the narrow tip and seemed to be firmly stuck. Afraid trying to help might cause more harm than good, I decided to wait and see if he could figure it out for himself. It took a few minutes, but he did gradually squeeze himself out, landing safely in the flowers. You just never know where you might come across these sweet little guys!
I often come across some interesting feathers on my walks. I know the larger one came from a Wild Turkey, but I don’t recognize the smaller one.
