54 this morning and the promise of a warm, beautiful day. Yesterday was nearly 80, almost too warm, at least for this time of year. In summer, we'd have thought that was a cool day. The rain on Tuesday has kept the leaves pretty, although many are dropping.
This gorgeous autumn weather continues, with the best display of color we've had in some time. We don't have to go far to see beauty; just a walk up our driveway or a short drive across the ridge can satisfy.
This photo and the next 5 are from Tuesday morning, when it was raining. I had an appointment for a skin scan at the dermatologist (just checking to be sure there are no lurking cancerous cells, and there are not ) and it was fairly bucketing, as my Irish friends might say.
Even in the rain, it's still so beautiful here. I never get enough of looking at this land where I live.
These old oaks have been my friends since I moved here. Some of them are quite hollow, but they still withstand the high winds on top of the ridge.
