A Quiet Stroll

It is very quiet outside today.  After yesterday's rain, the farm equipment is all parked, so there is little to no traffic.  The wind completely died back today, and there is hardly a breeze to rustle the leaves.  There is just myself, the dog and the birds, and even we aren't making our usual ruckus.  Everyone is enjoying the peaceful quiet of the day. 
This web made by a funnel spider collected the rain drops beautifully.

I'm not sure what type of birds these are, but they are usually very chatty.  Not today.  You  wouldn't
even know they were there if you didn't look up.

Bear usually gets pretty excited when I go out for a walk, and runs laps around me. 
But today he just sauntered along not too far from me, the entire time.

All the pumpkins have been harvested and are awaiting a few days of sunshine so they
can ripen up.

Leaves are starting to turn, and fall to the ground. 

The hops are covered in their blooms.  It is unbelievable how much they grow every season.


  1. That is such a nice photo of Bear. - I've neve seen hops up close, very neat looking bloom.

    1. Thanks Ida. The hops look fantastic this time of year. I'm really looking forward to when they have completely froze, because I've learned their vines are excellent for twisting into wreaths and things.

  2. I was born and raised in the city, and I have always wondered what it would be like to live in the country. I bet your dog loves having all that space to run around and play in.

    On another note, putting pumpkins by the door outside to ripen is a neat trick! I actually thought they were decorations for the fall season. I hope it did not take them long to ripen.
