Seasons


Fall is special to me in so many ways. I love all the colors, smells and tastes of this time of year. Gardening has been in full force for months and now it is time to close up the yard and dream and plan for next spring. Wouldn't you just love to know how all of this was rolling around in God's head and how it all came to be? It is beyond my comprehension. I have a hard time coming up with a weeks worth of dinner menus.

We Got Swooped

I have always hoped to see an owl in the wild. I have even toyed with the idea of going on a night hike at one of the nature preserves but just have never made time to do it. God did it for me this past weekend. We were driving down the hill from having wedding photos taken at Devou Park and a big bird almost swooped into our windshield. I looked in the woods to see if I could find out what kind of bird it was and this is what I saw.
I was about to climb out Mark's window to get a good look. And wouldn't you know...I didn't have the other lens with me. (I gotta start carrying everything with me). Can you find the owl?
I am going to ask Michael if he will do the research to find out what kind of owl this is.

Another thing to mark off my Bucket List. Seems my list is getting shorter. Wonder if I should be concerned? Still looking for that hummingbird nest.
