Morning Walk

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.
