We have had some chilly rainy days but the rain has ended on the coldest nights and days. In general, when it has been below freezing it is drier so far.
Hard to believe we're into the second week of November.
There's still a lot of fall color in central NC where I live.
Before long though the trees will have lost all their leaves.
The children aren't allowed to feed the ducks but they got their attention with pine straw of all things.
There were only two cormorants that I saw on a Sunday walk.
I usually see more cormorants this time of the year at Shelley Lake.
I saw a few mallards, Canadian Geese and white ducks.
In general though, I didn't see as many water birds as I usually do.
I love the way the pine boughs look against the orange leaves in the shot above.
We had a spectacular sunset after a rainy day.
It's a treat to get a sunset after the rain ends.
I think I like leaves on the ground as much as I do on the trees.
