Robins and berries

This afternoon I saw a robin! He was poking his beak around the berries of the Mountain Ash tree.
I was thrilled that a robin had returned to my garden,
I was beginning to think that they had mysteriously slipped away in the night without as much as a goodbye.
But I guess my neighbors had tastier treats. I also saw them on the ground eating up the elderberries that have fallen there very overripe and staining my grass a mushy purple.
This mountain ash is a volunteer. It is growing better than the one we planted and producing more berries.
We are headed to Galena tomorrow and I hope to take some photos of our house and land there for you to see.
I can't wait to see what is going on in the woods there.

I'm not feeling very poetic lately so please excuse my prosey's not very Open Bar-ish
It's this autumn thing that is blowing's got me down a bit (despite the glorious blue skies and cooler weather)....and I hate that...but I see ..I know
that it is the season changing as it should.
I'm all ready mourning the lack of new flowers to suprise and delight me. Only a blush here and there....or out and out fade away plants. And the trees have been trying to tell me for weeks that they are getting ready to hunker down.....I don't want them to go!!!!!!!!!
But the time will come when I will submit

  1. Glad you had a visit from your favorite bird. Looking forward to seeing pics of Galena.

    I like it when the weather cools off, but also struggle a bit with the transition from summer to autumn for different reasons. I think it is the shorter days.

  2. It's so lovely that you had a visit from a robin, our robins in NZ aren't really robins but the early settlers called them robins because of their resemblance to the English one.
    I can understand grieving for a season that is passing, in time you will see the beauty of the new season.
