Not unusual. It is still, kind of, mid-October. It has, however, been a LONG foliage season — NOT that I am complaining. I am amazed by the amount of color. To begin with there was a noticeable shortage of yellow. It was all red. Now we have a surfeit. Beautiful to walk through. I am now heading north (actually north east) to Maine. Not sure what I will find there. But, I will, of course, share with you when I get back.
Look on the other band — where the green grass ends & the brown earth starts. Normally the water would be UP THERE.
This is serious. This is bad. We had a BIT of rain today. Will NOT make a dent.
We are NOT that worried right now. We have a 600′ well. But, some will start to feel this soon UNLESS we get a LOT of rain.
You can see one bear getting ready to steal bird feeder.
That was May 11, 2020. 149-days ago. We searched for the bird feeder for days. It was a birthday present & had sentimental value.
Next door neighbor found it way at the bottom of their yard. Quite a long ways away. He/she carried it 400/500 yards. I am impressed.
It is NOT damaged. Not broken into or misshapen. It held suet. So they must have scooped it out.
We are HAPPY. If we can now find the other — $110 — one. SMILE.
