I don’t remember what these beautiful flowers are called. But, they continue to bloom and bloom!

Mountain Chickadee. We haven’t had a Mountain in our yard in a while. We are at 5,000 feet elevation; they like the higher elevations. Nice to see!

It can be fun walking around in your own yard!

Poetry:~Fall is in the air~

autumn harmonies 

resonance comes from a far

musical rhythms


classic “V” in view

unfurled across the sky

geese fly in formation


brave leader singing

honk-a-lonk notes

signaling fall migration

While having coffee yesterday morning, on the deck, Howard and I could hear Canada Geese honking. Two flocks flew directly over head, bringing signs of fall with them. I can’t believe I don’t have an image of a Canada Goose. Note to self  – take one!
