The leaves continue to change and the air gets colder and quieter every day. The afternoons are still getting quite warm though after the fog burns off. Perfect for late afternoon walks. So ... off we went for a family walk!
This row of trees was just picture perfect! The only thing missing was that bright blue sky particular to Autumn afternoons. More of a blah grey today, but oh, those magnificent trees!Watch where you step! It's a fuzzy Wooly Bear!! Otherwise known as the caterpillar form of the Isabella tiger moth, Pyrrharctia isabella, but that's just not as much fun to say as "Wooly Bear" :) Folklore has it that the severity of the coming winter can be foretold by the width of the brownish/red band. A wide band means a mild winter and a narrow one means a harsh winter. Hmmmm.....from the looks of this one, looks like plenty of snow and ice ahead!
