Indian Summer surprises

Walking in the September woods I came to a fork in the road and was surprised by this beauty just feet in front of me. The expression on his face matched what he saw in mine, I'm sure.
In typical deer fashion, I'm learning, his curiosity delayed his departure...much to my delight.
[note his whiskers]

The woods were full of my favorite autumn asters.

The aster greets us as we pass
With her faint smile.

Skywatch Friday, or off the beaten path

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! Percy Bysshe Shelley Some sky views in our new abode: Above is the same path I walk each week but now emblazoned by autumn. Below is the view of the lake from our apartment, looking past our neighbor's deck to Lake Owasso and a cloudy September day.
When I just can't open another packed box, I remember that there is a truth to be found whenever I randomly look up at the sky.
Rest? Camaraderie? Harmony? At any rate, these three birds have the right idea.
