I decided to take a drive late this afternoon, while Keith slept.
He had a hard day.
Bees, flies and butterflies were still working sunflowers along the road.
The goldenrod is so pretty, but Keith is so allergic to it!
The creeks are high and flowing fast... we had 8 - 9 inches of rain in the last two days, and
expect more tomorrow.
Fall colors are everywhere.
I saw these three girls as I drove up a gravel road.
They did not like me stopping.
I wish I had had the longer lens on, but I had put the medium on for a purpose.
Don't look now, but THIS is where the Big Ditch WAS.
The rock wall.... is right up to the discharge pipe at the edge of the road. The ditch was behind it.
Look what they have created.
Saturday when I went to church, there were hundreds of kildeer there. There were still many tonight.
It is not deep, but wide.
And to the east side is this.... it's like a place for water to come off Stranger Creek and fill the basin.
There is a rock channel in the middle... and birds were perched all over it, they
were not kildeer, but I could not see with that lens. I'm going back tomorrow with the long lens.
There were kildeer everywhere.
On my way back, I saw four deer in the meadow again, but the second I stopped, all hit the woods.
I did not see a turkey anywhere.
I like these changes in the Big Ditch!
