a late summer morning

and life is good time to rise and shine! a spider spins and climbs Mr. Goldfinch nibbles at the feeder while a blue jay waits,  surprisingly quiet in the oak tree there’s fresh sugar water for the hummer and Chip climbs out on the woodpile   he will join me on the deck, as he does most mornings, with his cheeks full of seeds but…

no turning back

    the summer pinks are fading fast slowly replaced by the warm golds, oranges, reds and purples   the change is inevitable and I’m at peace with that in a few days, it will be Labor Day weekend it’s been a great summer but it’s time to move on and I’m looking forward to an equally great autumn here in New England

hmmm, not sure how I got up here it’s a long way down and not much room to spread my wings so I’ll just jump… mission accomplished ahhhh, so much better!
