It was sweatshirt weather when Trooper and I made our way to farm the last two mornings I snapped a few pictures and thought I would share them.
October 9, 2019
It was right around 8:00 A.M. The sun was up, the sky was blue but patches of fog hung near the ground.
The Autumn colors are showing up but are not nearly at their peak.
I took this shot photo from a distance because once we got closer Trooper was sure to chase her off.
The sun was shining through the fog.
While the drops of moisture that covered everything shimmered in the sunlight.
Trooper searched the field for mice.
Perched high over head, these two bids shared a barren tree. It looks like a red winged blackbird on the right, but I am not sure what the one on the left is. This tree is one of the few dead ash that remain standing. I suspect by this time next year we will have cut it up for fire wood.
Even chillier than yesterday – I wore a sweatshirt with a long sleeved turtle-neck underneath, a knit hat, and rubber boots to keep my feet dry.
As we started our walk I thought ‘gloves would have been nice too’.
Fog hovered above the pond.
As I looked at the grasses and various plant leaves they appeared to be covered in more than just dew. I reached down and touched a leaf I found that it was indeed frost on the leaves.
I could barely make out the deer who were grazing in the back of the field. I am not sure if they could see me or just hear me.
After chasing the deer off Trooper began his search for mice.
The sun is once again working to burn off the fog.
Since we have had frost I expect the fall colors will come on quickly now.
I spotted some geese in the neighbors back yard. I had to go full zoom to got this shot.
I wonder if any of my flowers will succumb to the frost.
Before leaving Trooper decided to get a nice cool drink. He then laid on the beach, but I had to be a party pooper and tell him it was time to go.
Thanks for visiting the farm with me. Until next time – be well. 🙂
