It's been a busy time here on the farm. Harvest time is here, so the fields are full of combines getting off their crops --last week the roar of engines and the shine of headlights went long into the night. It can be a noisy place out here at harvest time.
The girls and I set off for a walk to take in some of autumn's great colors. We passed the garden, where we saw this green grass snake who made a visit to the pond, ending his swim by crawling in a tiny crevice under a rock.
Then past the flower border, where the dahlias were putting on one last show before the frost.
Through the fields, and by the dugout we found a little bunch of wild flowers that had volunteered. They are bog plants growing on the wet peaty side of the pond.
Then through the long grass, where even a mastiff can disappear
And finally back up and over the hill toward home. And that's where the geese are headed too.
