Hit the trail!




Ah, autumn. I love to get out on the Perkiomen Trail throughout the year, but autumn is my favorite season by far for hitting the trail.
The scents that tickle your nose -- the fallen leaves, someone off in the distance with a fire burning -- the crisp air and the crunch under your feet. Those special hues of autumn can take your breath away.
And the trail opens up the opportunities to fill your senses, so brisk walks there are great for the body and soul.
Hike along!

Can't get enough of autumn!

 We've had a lot of gorgeous days this autumn and today was no exception. Just glancing at this leaf on my porch step sent me out for a short hike.


Othercat was ready to head out for the stroll as well...


Such a pretty view down through the yard and our side field.






 Crunching through the yard…









A little visitor...




 Love that autumn sky!



Not all of our flowers have given up yet...



That is all, says Othercat, fresh from rolling in the dry leaves..

Time for autumn...

Today was the last full day of summer. Tomorrow, late in the day, autumn arrives.
I am psyched!


I love autumn… just wish that a nasty winter was not being predicted to follow my favorite season!
So this morning I trekked around the yard with Othercat, our outdoor kitty who has decided to adopt us, it appears. I figured I should snap a few photos on this last day of summer.
I hope autumn is full of color and beauty. And if it decides to hold court until well into January, that would be just fine with me!

September song

I love autumn, and although it's not fall yet, I was beginning to think summer was starting all over again this past week. But Sunday was such a wonderful surprise -- cool breezes, low humidity and just that hint of autumn in the air!



So it was a must to get out and stroll around the yard, snapping a few photos along the way. It was just such a delightful day after those recent humid and hot ones. Please, no more of those this year!


A few last blooms of summer…







Hints of autumn...


Yep, a gorgeous day...


Othercat thought so, too. He had to accompany me, which wouldn't be so bad if he didn't have to weave in and out between your feet with every step. He's our outdoor cat who seems to have adopted us. At least we were able to get him to the vet this summer to be neutered and get all of his vaccines! Now we have to build him a house, in case he sticks around for the cold temps!Hi there!


Othercat isn't even afraid of this garden resident … Guess he's figured out it's not alive.
