Some maples still making a bit of show, ash trees mostly bare, oaks beginning to turn reddish brown. The birches, aspens, and poplars are mostly just dumping leaves.
Even the asters have quit blooming. Milkweed pods turning some unmowed fields into cotton plantations.
No roadkill to report. Some ducks in the cemetery pond, but no sign of any heron. May have been a wayfaring stranger, headed south.
Windy enough that I gave up on my plan to bike at the national park. Temperature vaulted into the upper 50s F, so I grabbed my chance for a ride. Did not die.
