Shiny Fall Day

Today is cold, a little windy, and very shiny and bright and sunny. The sky is perfect.

The leaves are changing and are fast blowing down to carpet the lawn.

The chickadees and all their friends have returned to my feeders. This one is waiting, eying me warily, for his turn to snatch a sunflower seed. They'll eat out of my hands sometimes.

Rosy and all her pals are foraging in the now-dormant garden. There is no better weeding/fertilizer combination than a hungry hen!

The little Orpington chicks have grown into big pullets, bigger than the Reds and getting ready to lay, probably in a few weeks.

It's nice to have a few minutes in a busy day to reflect on the changing of the seasons.
