A light rain fell as I ran in the early morning yesterday. It has rained the first three days of winter. Sunday morning, a layer of ice still covered the pond. A flock of geese milled about on the ice and the grass. The cracking of the ice under their feet sounded like the chiming of tiny bells. Later today, the rain will turn into snow flurries.
I spent the mornings of the last week in September at the Arboretum. The leaves were showing their fall colors. The summer flowers were trying their best to hold on. Great Lobelias, Asters, and Tall Bellflowers gathered on the path in the woods. A small Woodland Sunflower hugged the ground at the edge of the prairie. The Wrinkled Rose bush held buds, blooms, and rose hips. A Dandelion flower peered out from the grass near the meadow.
Take care and thanks for visiting.
