The End of Summer

The first photo is of the beanfield across the road and the rest are from the property.

Sometimes the clouds rise like mountains.

Seemingly overnight there were hundreds of spiders' webs in this one section of the land. They were all heavy with dew and glistening in the sun and I wish I had a way to capture the scope of them.

Natural bouquets all around.

2 Month Old Field

The immediate land around the house and driveway was plowed over and graded about two months ago. From brown to green with no help from me.

At first I thought they were flower petals or leaves scattered on the road until I realized they were all frogs. There were thousands underfoot. Most hopped towards the curb as I approached but many hopped further into the middle of road. Later, as I stood talking with a neighbour in her yard about the frogs, she said it sounded like popcorn each time a car drove by and sure enough it did.

Ducks and ducklings

From Paul and Tina's farm.

Ducks in the duck house discussing important matters with the month old ducklings:

Ducks in a jug. These two females were lying on a batch of eggs and weren't happy about me looming over them so close. Hissed at me the whole time:

Always a bossy one in the squad:

Only a day old and already making leaps:

Last embers of the day

View from the kitchen window at the end of this hottest of days.

Wellington Beach Pollen

Would this make the fish sneeze?

Thousands of dead ones washed ashore and onto the beach looking like they crawled off the Aliens movie set.
