Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

October's End

The last day of October began with a red sunrise.

The day's grayness was punctuated by muted colors, such as the  yellow-gold of the crape myrtle . . .

. . . and the rusty red of the dogwood.

The burning bush at the end of the bottom driveway was the main spot of color.

Many trees have already lost their leaves. What leaves remain on the pin oak aren't very colorful.

The afternoon ended with muted trees against a gray sky.

During the evening, the wind came up a bit and a few sprinkles of rain fell—not a very colorful end of the month at all.
