Quiet autumn days have arrived, when the weather changes throughout the day. In the morning it may be drizzling and at noon the wind blows the clouds, the sky turns blue and the sun peeks out here and there. I love to walk on such days, my mood improves and the sun's rays remind me of summer days. Of course, I don't walk far and rely on my capabilities. If I get tired, I sit on a bench or on a log, take photographs, and make sketches for watercolors.
In October there are no annoying mosquitoes and small flies as in July and August. Sometimes wasps and bumblebees arrive looking for a hole for the winter. They don't pay attention to people, they have their own worries.
Birds are preparing to fly to warmer climes. Geese and ducks gather in flocks. Young birds try out their wings. It's nice to look at young birds. They don’t yet know that the road will be long. They shout joyfully and push each other.
Small birds that winter with us are beginning to look for places to feed in winter. Three titmice flew onto the porch yesterday and were looking for food. I thought it was time to put food in the bird feeder for them. I need to replenish my supplies of grains and seeds.
When I got home my appetite was good. After lunch, I made a work plan to prepare the garden and house for winter. I'll tell you in the next post.
It's all for now. Take care.
