Thank you to the many who have inquired about how I'm feeling since the Great Illness of September 2013! I'm back to my usual health these days and very glad of that. He is feeling much better too, thankfully.
Anyway, these are from a hike we took recently in the same general hills as our hike I posted about in August. You can see that here.
Last time we went to the right, but this time we went on the trails to the left of the mountain.
Come along, won't you?
How many locks does it take?
Oh, well, the gate was open and so in we went...
The trail into the oak grove
The trail back out
I was on an acorn collecting mission that day!
Looking up I notice such interesting patterns on this tree's trunk.
Here's a closer look. Do you see what I see?
Red lines, life lines!
An old capped well made a great drum!
Back home again, I spent time with my sunflowers.
As fall heads towards winter, their days are numbered.
I don't want them to go just yet.
Days later, they were falling over of their own accord.
Then the landlord sent someone to 'clean-up' all of the
volunteer trees and such in the back 40.
All that stands there now are the two logs.
One is from the walnut tree my neighbor cut down.
The other one you can read about here.
We're back to more brown than green back there.
