for early Fall.
The flowers here are thriving
with cooler temperatures
and rain showers.
Sometimes I wish it could all just stay like this
just a little while longer.
One very welcomed change here is how
Gracie has been mellowing out since Bleu was born.
She hardly ever pins her ears anymore and now whinnys when
she sees me.
Carrying a pocketful of range cakes
seems to have helped me win her over.
About a month ago I noticed her tail was shorter.
At first I thought she might have gotten it hung up in a fence.
But since then I've seen Bleu chewing on it.
It's almost half gone now!
When we worked in the woods yesterday afternoon;
we found this skull beneath a tree.
We're not sure what it is... coyote? Fox? Maybe even a dog?
It looks too big to be a possum.
Usually I find feathers, turtle shells, birdnests, even vintage bottles and jars.
Never a skull before.
It was so enjoyable walking our fencelines and .Fall is the best time of all
to go hiking around here, but already the guns have started blasting.
Our place is posted but still; you just never know.
I'll be glad when it's all over and safer to get out in nature again.
