The garden is full of  bumble bees and asters.
The first day of autumn is here!

Brody enjoyed an afternoon nap on the couch
as the sun made a brief appearance.

Tonight we loved seeing the Great White Egrets
gracefully fly by the moon in the fog.

Autumn Feathered Friends

The bees are busy in the garden gathering pollen
from the tansy...

I was so happy to see the hummingbird was still
here, I know that soon she will be flying south
and I will miss her.

Am delighted to see the juvenile night heron is
also still here...

Another favorite that feels so magical to me
is watching the egrets fly just before sunset
to the island where
all the shore birds spend the night.

We still have some warmish days
before the cold weather settles in and these
feathered friends will fly to warmer climates til next year.

My photos, drawings and memories will carry me
through til they return next spring.
