Mom and Dad's Visit: Day Three

The weather? Perfect.


Late autumn colors....

Cat tails wisping away...

Branches shed of leaves reveal their own beauty.


Secret places revealed amongst the ember red rose hip.

The nest still looks quite cozy inside.

Markers of red..the remain of fragrant summer roses long since spent.


Deep river water tracks through the land, adding soft sound to the scenery.


Cat tail meadows...

Surround frozen ponds.


Red barns bright against the hillside.

Red...

Golds...

In the cold, nature draws my eye...



While family warms my heart. To walk with my Mom and see bird's nest and share the colors and textures I see...something I long for often...is a blessing I treasure greatly.

While Bernie fishes...

the scenery becomes the best I have seen in years: My Favorite Men enjoying the outdoors together.

I remember the childhood years when my Dad and I would fish. Dad is past his wader and fly line season now, but still can enjoy seeing another enjoying the sport.
No fish were caught that day, but many memories were taken.
Trophy caliber time, time that rate a memory making record.

Family is a blessing indeed. The scenery there has its own sort of beauty and I love all the earthy colors with those splashes of red!
