While on my walk I was amused by this gathering of ducks across from the ditch -- and the sign leaning against the tree.
Someone has been leaving seed for the birds there. I like that person!
And this little bird has a "bird's eye" view of everything!
Leaves are tumbling at far too fast a rate for my taste! But they make a wonderful sound when you drag your feet through them.
The squirrels are scurrying with great abandon, hoarding nuts for their winter larder.
This year I feel doubly blessed, seeing gorgeous color up north early in the month, and then this color down state now.
I stopped at a pumpkin farm that was offering cider and donuts. There were crowds, but not at the cider stand so I masked up and got a treat!
I resisted the mums -- it was hard, but I did!
But they were incredibly lush and full.
But I couldn't resist taking some photos of the brilliantly colored gourds!
On the home front I've been cleaning the art room and baking a lot -- lemon bread, pumpkin bread and and apple bread. The house smells so good when I bake!
Be careful out there. The virus is casting a long shadow. Stay safe and well.
