Or, probably in this case, lasses. It's been a while since we've seen the turkeys. But I walked up the lane the other morning and
...there they were, on the neighbour's immaculate lawn.
I'm never quick enough to get a good picture but here are some Canada geese flying south - or west in this case. Another perfect V passed right over my head, so close I could hear the rush and beating of their wings, not to mention their purposeful honking.
Autumn is fast approaching, despite the fact that, with all the rain, we don't seem to have had a summer. The goldenrod is taking over everywhere.
The neighbour's pond is rippling with autumnal breezes.
The wildflowers getting ready for tapestry time.
And in the garden, the evening sun shines through the fir tree.
This is about as good as the garden's got this year.
It seems the deer didn't eat all the garden phlox. Just most of them.
