Temp 48F Sky Clear
Heavy fog before sunrise resulted in moisture collecting on the canopy that fell like rain as I walked this morning, despite the clear sky. My feet are wet as well. I must get a pair of walking shoes with rubber, not canvas, toes!
The bouquet I cut this weekend is by far the prettiest all summer. A mix of zinnias I planted this year, aster that i planted from seed 2 yrs ago that reseed themselves, and wild aster from the yard.
I put out a new thistle feeder 2 weeks ago. Birds are very wary of anything new, so I was happy to see this Goldfinch having breakfast. It was also interesting to see it is going through its fall molt from its summer bright yellow to winter’s drab olive.
This mourning dove visits the birdbath every morning.
The hummingbirds remain at the feeder so far but they’ll leave soon. I have an eye out for the juncos. I dread their arrival because it means winter is not far behind.
