Catching that moment before it falls off the branches....(That's the maple tree that shades our patio in summer).
The deer motorway running through our back garden revealed (see the tracks behind the tree) They'll be casing the joint for now - bushes watch out!
Pretty when you don't have to walk or drive in it...
A misty scene atop our highest local point, Chapel Hill. ps I think this beats New York City's dropping disco ball any time.
Happy New Year Everyone!
