Autumn Weather Returns

Yesterday the rain was so heavy that my morning walk was out of the question. Luckily that was the last day of the wet weather. Today was overcast for most of the day, but cleared up this afternoon, and the air is noticeably cooler. And I found some interesting things for you on the morning walk:

The scene inside the back gate - on Dixon St. - to The Elms mansion.

The Artful Lodger Inn on Spring St.; I've always loved this sign.

Lily-of-the-Valley berries in Morton Park. Yup, this is what those lovely little bell-shaped white flowers turn into! Note the little visitor down there on the bottom edge of the shot; I didn't see her until I processed this shot in Photoshop.

And today there's a bonus. A friend dropped by at lunchtime and I convinced her that she wanted to take a drive down to Hazard Rd., and she fell for it. So I managed to get you all some more shots of Gooseneck Cove in some advancing Autumnal glory:

  1. Aww feel like crying now, my lovely camera, stuck in a bin somewhere in Italy . . at least I can come here and admire your shots until the insurance pays up. Love Gooseneck in Autumn, it's so beautiful.

  2. All the fountains around here were turned off a couple weeks ago, gets too cold. I hate it when the fountains are turned off.

  3. ...I've never seen the red berries from Lily of the Valley. Which birds go for them. I would assume Robins...do Catbirds?
