Thursday foliage report

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.

Old house, Maine

Reset the garage door rails to compensate for sag, in hopes that winter frost heaves won't jam the door and leave our snowblower stranded.

I can understand people being angry. I can't understand them being surprised.
