Sunday, Sunday...

October is upon us!!  The chill of Autumn is in the air-hurray!  I love the fall so much!  We had a particularly hot and humid summer here in SC and we were really looking forward to cooler weather so we could enjoy the out of doors.  My morning visitor, the Egret was chilled too, with temp at 52 degrees-ha!  He is hunkered down into his soft warm feathers while watching the lake for fish.

He lifts his head for a moment and then hunkers back down.

   It rained a lot last week and the lake is full once again.  It is a beautiful morning.  The Begonia pot that we had bought for the little patio by the lake was knocked over one day and it rolled into the lake where the turtles were attacking it with a vengeance!  By the time I rescued it, they had eaten a good amount of it's leaves so after convalescing on the back porch for a week or so, I hung it in the tree near the chairs and it is beautiful again.

It's Fall, Ya'll!  Enjoy your Sunday and come back soon!

Raking at my childhood home in Auburn, NY.  Age 7 or 8

Great egret reflections, you even got his beak in that one shot! The photo of you raking is so sweet! You are dressed kind of like a grown-up, so you look quite mature for that age.

Autumn may be here but in the UK we've had a heatwave, Yesterday was the hottest October day since records began.

Loved the pics they are so cute and I do so love the wildlife.

Have a good week.

That egret is beautiful, Kerrie! I have the funniest image in my head now of the turtles feasting on your begonia - lol!
