Backyard Tranquility

Sometimes, all it takes is a few minutes and the fog lifts to reveal colour. Yesterday’s foggy impressions didn’t last long. By the time I had made my morning round with the dogs I arrived home to find the backyard fog had dissolved. I walked down to the water’s edge and was delighted to find the colours on the trees across are indeed changing. A little more red, gold and brown is asserting itself with each new day.

In fact, as I sit on my couch this morning composing this post I look across another low tide and discover significant changes in the trees over the last 24 hours. Could the colour intensify this fast? These are the images from this morning. Just take note of the colour!

It is striking how quickly the vista altered. I love standing by the water’s edge listening to the birds all around. Our resident murder of crows cawing high above in the maple, a small paddling of ducks quickly moves away when they take note of my silhouette making sounds one would associate with cats rather than ducks. One of these days, when the garden is established, we plan to have a bench or a couple of chairs near the water. What a delight it will be to observe the activities in our extended backyard.

Wish I could can the natural sounds to accompany today’s images. Alas, you must use your imagination instead. Enjoy your Wednesday! Best wishes, Anna
