Fernando and I went for a walk early this morning. If you had been with us you would have:
seen the sun illuminating the downy bellies of the Canadian Geese flying overhead
heard their honking as they journeyed north
seen the work of a very ambitious and, judging from the size of the web, a very hungry spider
seen hundreds of piles of dirt evidence of voles building their underground network. You have to admire that little beast's snout and ability to move dirt
seen the blue sky without a cloud. Juxtaposed with the yellow leaves and red crabapples, it looks bluer than blue.
felt the crisp air on your hands and face
watched Fernando disturb a mallard duck couple as he went for a dip in the storm water reserve
heard the hum of the city in the distance and the chickadees nearby
noticed the dew on the grass and how the sunlight made it look like crystals
admired a few yards who are ready for fall - one in particular has pumpkins outside and tall willow branches in an urn with autumn leaves around the base
hated to come home.
