The weather has been about perfect during the days here. Going out one fine evening I took a picture of the setting sun and didn’t even notice the heart until later…can you see it? The leaves are starting to change now. The pod plants I’ve been watching are all yellow now for the most part…that’s a radical change from just a few days ago. I’ve been waiting to see what the pods contained…I was hoping for some Autumn flower or something…not the case. Just look at how puffy the tops of these sees are! There’s not been the usual wind here so the seeds are mostly in the pods still. The thistles have been just exploding near the pond now. Returning home I’m struck by the marching on of the seasons. The big picture and the close up view work together to show the inevitable end of summer . I just pray that drought ends and the dry season finds it’s end along with summer.
