The mornings are cooler now and there is quite a bit of dew on the ground. In summer when I sat out on the deck at 6am having my coffee the birds were already busy and there was plenty of light but now it is dark at 6am and damp if you are not cozy in your housecoat and slippers. No more roaming around in my pjs taking pictures at the break of dawn . I do like the intensity of some of the colours in the Sandbox flowers though. Miss Ruby Buddleia is at her peak and the morning glories are glorious in the morning. I captured this snail on the front walk. He was probably headed for a juicy Hosta plant.
I have been making the trek to Peterborough, an hour and a half away to see my Dad of late. He is 92 and is now showing signs of dementia. We had just moved him to a nice retirement home after his house sold but he will not be able to stay there as they do not have the level of care needed for a person in his lack of awareness. It is a big worry at the moment. As I am travelling the roads I see lovely views and I want to stop to take a picture but I am usually rushing there or rushing back. It won’t be long before I will see lots of colour in the trees out that way.
I am planning on joining Mary for Mosaic Monday. Last week I posted in my blog but had to run as Dad had fallen and I never got to post to the meme.
Have a great week.
