Another Sunday Morning Walk

It's still Summer, but there are beginning to be traces of Fall; the mornings are cooler, as are the days, the air is drying out some, and the Canada Geese are getting restless. Today's Sunday morning walk in the Dykeman Spring Nature Park yielded the usual Summery scenes, but the temperature was down 10 degrees and there's a subtle smell of Fall in the air. Here comes September!

    1. No, no! Keep it down there, Ant Man! I'm tired of Summer and longing for Fall!
