Today the weather has broken again. The heat and humidity are gone and the air was so crisp this morning I put on a sweatshirt to drink my tea on the porch.
A few leaves are falling and it's clear that the season is slowly beginning to shift.
It is perfect walking weather.
It's very quiet here in the mornings. During our walk we usually hear no cars or other human-made sounds, just wind and birds and woods noises. Today was glorious, the coolest of breezes, the brilliant sun, dew still on the grass. A few flowers are blooming along the way.
The dogs have a wonderful time exploring all along the edges of the road, rough-housing and sniffing every tree, or so it seems.
This morning a young buck crossed a little ways ahead of us. The dogs started after it but I called them back--and good dogs, they came. They love these mudholes along our way!
I don't know the name of this grass, but it is stunning in the morning light.
The neighbor's horses greeted us on our return.
And back to our own driveway, to home and breakfast. It's a fine way to start the day, and even finer now that the weather is cool enough to really enjoy it.
