Busting Ice and Bothering Geese!

Leave a comment

With age does not always wisdom come. But, fun it was! We had a crazy-cold week that froze the river, and now a crazy-warm day to test out the water.  Nice.

Mogli leads the way.

The mic on my phone was broken, but just imaging the sound of crunching ice.

Time for a break.

Here, imagine geese honking their displeasure! and ice popping as it melts. Hit ‘play’ and it is not upside down.

Sweet Mogli has captured a hunk of ice to take home! (Video is correct when plays)

Sweet Sycamore Cradles Both Eagles and the Moon.

On this day I knew the shot, the reason I brought my camera on the expedition. The day before there was a magnificent scene of the moon high over an eagles nest along the river. I wanted to capture it on “film.” This next day, I got that shot, but did not. Over the 24 hours the moon had moved more than I knew, and was beyond the nest when I arrived at the spot shown in the last photo here. That was good luck! I took photos of this and more, and as I headed home an eagle soared over me, and as I turned to watch, did 3 large 360’s over the *other* nest mounted along the river nearby. The eagle drew me back to a high perch above the nest and tree to take the first 2 photos here. It’s in there!

Garden Gleaning on the First of October

Leave a comment

The best way to garden in the Fall is apparently to go to Norway. Then when you come back, it is actually Fall and time to move wood and gather in the last of the garden.

Farm Truck

First Load of Wood

The garden is quite the disaster.

But hiding behind all of those brown corn and sunflower stalks is a bunch of good stuff: pumpkins, sweet peppers, cayene, jalapeño, habañero, carrots, beets, and watermelon. More to come too!

Mini pumpkins hide under the grass and weeds.

An entire basket of peppers with more to come.

Hotey admires the flowers while eating corn.

Fin.

Fall bounty.
