I have lost count of the gloomy, wet and cloudy days we have experienced lately, but on Friday the sun paid us a brief visit, so I took the camera to the Park to find some color.
Wind and rain had stripped many of the leaves from the trees before they could turn, but I did find a few bright spots.
It was unseasonably warm again today, and we even had a brief thunder-storm, but colder temperatures are on the way and the next few nights will be below freezing.
I hung the bird feeder yesterday, and it is already doing a brisk trade. I don’t put out seed in the summer as I find it draws squirrels, mice and the odd possum, which sends Abbie into a tizzy. It always surprises me how quickly the birds discover it is back. They must pass the word around to each other!
