We are in day two of a nor'easter that is bringing lots of wind and rain to, well, the northeast. That includes the Maritime provinces and also New England. It's cloudy, the wind is blowing, the rain is beating against the front of the house, the roads are covered with water (there have been several accidents due to hydro-planing), the ditches and brooks and rivers are filling up (as are the wells) and I think we've had enough. Oh, and it's chilly out ~ only 7C. I'm so glad it's not snowing. The weekend doesn't look very promising with showers and cloud but next week is looking a little brighter.
Monday morning's sunrise.
The early morning sun was shining on this fern which grows under the cedar tree next to the front door. I love the golden glow.
Looking out the back door that same morning the sun made long shadows from the trees onto the freshly cut field turning it rusty orange with the dark clouds adding some drama. The sun did come out later.
Leaves. Millions of leaves. From 5 maple trees in our yard.
The field was ploughed mid-week and the seagulls were finding some tidbits to eat.
I haven't been out much to take photos this week. I might just be running out of blog fodder. Oh, I do have a few more photos from Kings Landing to share with you though. I was to physiotherapy for my knee which seems to be improving but my hip needs attention too. It's all attached you know, so, inevitably one thing leads to another. This rainy weather sure has the arthritis and Fibromyalgia acting up today. Does the weather affect you that way? Maybe it's just my age. LOL However, I am thankful that I am still mobile and fairly active, although the pain slows me down some days.
Murray 'raking' some of the maple leaves from the lawn.
On Tuesday evening, before dark which comes so early now, we spent an hour mulching and bagging the last of the leaves in our yard. Murray used the push mower that has a mulcher on it and a rear bag and I held the tall paper bags open for him to dump the leaves in. We got 5 - 4 foot tall - bags full. That wasn't all the leaves. He'd raked some before (photo above) and dumped them on the vegetable garden plot to be turned under later on. It was good to get this job done before the rains and wind of the past 2 days!
I see I have some new followers this week and I'd like to welcome you. I've enjoyed participating in some link parties this week and seeing some beautiful photos from around the world. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my posts.
I hope you have an enjoyable weekend. Take care!
