Nature Walks – It’s Finally Fall

I never want to inundate you all with post after post after post, but it is so hard for me not to share things with you all, especially when I have so many good things I want to present.

I love Fall. It is my favorite season of the year. I love the changing of the colors and the cool crisp air. And now, it is here. It is finally Fall! Our trees are beginning to change their colors, but so far this year, our colors are more subtle and are not as vibrant as they usually are. That’s OK. Everything is still beautiful. We have a lot of golds and yellows, but not so much of the oranges and reds this year.

Not only are the colors of the trees changing, but I have noticed a changing of the birds as well, though, so far, they have been rather elusive and hard to capture with my camera. The geese are out in droves again, as they usually are.

I even saw another slippery little fellow, that I would have much preferred NOT to see. It is late in the season for snakes, yet this is the second one I have seen in just a week’s time. The first one was a tiny baby snake, most probably a bull snake, though it had a rectangular head and could have very easily have been a rattler too. We do have plenty of them in our open space. I did not get a picture of him. I did however get a picture of this garter snake slithering across the pavement. I quickly changed directions, and headed the other way. I DO NOT like snakes of any kind!!!!!!
