Frost

First frost last night. Mist rising off the ponds and streams in the park this morning, grass glistening in sunlight. There is a lone American egret still here, I see him in the afternoons, sitting in the middle of Jefferson Lake.

Great horned owl in the sycamore tree in the back yard this morning. Air is finally crisp and cool.

Finally a walk at the arboretum this morning. Haven’t come to this site much lately- life just gets busy and frankly there’s not a lot I want to remember from this awful political era. We went to see a comedian last night, Dylan Moran, and even he seemed constrained by the political climate and divisions in these our United States- he is from Ireland. So. A walk in the woods was a welcome diversion this morning. The sun and the dew, and lots of spiders and webs. Critters have eaten all the paw-paw fruits. Persimmons haven’t ripened yet. The crickets are in the doorway when I come home in the evening, waiting to come inside for winter. I like their sound in the morning. And we have heard 2 pairs of owls in the neighborhood, in courtship mode, duetting.
