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 writing......it's not very Open Bar-ish
It's this autumn thing that is blowing in....it'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
