It's a wonderful and refreshing way to get away from it all and see some lovely scenery.
We've been very warm for this time of year.. too warm and it has been terribly humid too but temps are supposed to return to normal soon.
It can't be too soon for me.
We had sunny skies for most of it but rain very early today and a storm the other day as well.
Here is a photo record of those days...
as always, you can click to see photos full sized.

Leaves are beginning to change color little by little.
Peeking out into the woods behind me.
|Pines, swamp maples, scrub oak and holly|
The rain and wind made the chimes sound so pretty
|the little pond|
The high wind blew things over around the little pond. Plants are done blooming. Black Eyed Susans have gone to seed.
Inside things were cozy.
The big pond, below, weathers storms with grace.
It is pretty deep and the fish can seek refuge in the depths. It's plants are rooted deeply as well and keep the water fresh and clean.
