Rusted

Red oak leaves “rusting” on the branch

Many years ago, Robin pulled a red oak sapling out of the woods and planted it at the edge of our front yard. It’s now about 25′ tall and one of the showcase trees on our property (despite being decapitated in 2014…) This time of year it’s leaves look like they’re rusting. They cling to the branches well into the winter with some not dropping until new leaves push out in the spring. There are quite a few dried leaves from last season still on the branches…

Four of the Taft’s Jersey heifers don’t seem to be paying too much attention to the view along Shaker Mountain Road.

Feeling watched…

Harbor seals keeping an eye (many eyes) on me in Chatham, MA

While walking the beach in Chatham on Cape Cod, we were constantly under the gaze of large groups of harbor seals. This group was quite close to the shore—maybe 30 feet off—and didn’t have any problems with me taking their picture. Their rapt attention makes me wonder what they were thinking watching us…
