While the first week of fall was gloriously cool, the second week climbed back into the upper 90’s. Running out of time to walk in the morning hours I headed out to our ‘back forty’ about 5 in the afternoon. And while it was hot and I was plagued by mosquito’s it was still nice to get outside.
Here is what I saw.
I lived here about 4 years before I realized I had a pecan tree. Not that ‘a’ pecan tree does me much good but still…..
This bug totally photo-bombed my shot.
The persimmon’s are almost done….
There were an abundance of white, fluffy clouds on October 1st, 2014.
The glory days of this Sweet Gum leaf are quickly fading.
There has been a very busy squirrel nearby……..
Another photo-bombing bug……..
As I took this picture I heard some shuffling overhead and looked up just in time to see a squirrel leap from one nut tree into another, a distance of several feet. Pretty impressive!
As you can see here, our squirrels are very well fed. If the world starts to come to an end, we can live on those little buggers!
I tried to eat a squirrel once, I boiled him for about 6 hours and he was still tough, stringy and rather horrid. I really hope the world doesn’t come to an end and we are forced to eat them, it won’t be pleasant.
I think I’ll just fight them for the nuts instead.
The crows were having a meeting. Probably to devise a plan that will land them the bountiful nut crop, they better hurry. Those rodents are going thru them at a record pace.
The trestle. One of our farms coolest features.
I love fall.
Walking back toward the house I could see the horses kicking up dust around the barn, it is their “I am ready for my evening meal right now pretty please” dance.
I grabbed a persimmon, probably the last one I’ll eat this year. How time flies!
Thanks for walking with me today!

I want to come and get those persimmons!!! They would make a lovely jam. Glad I am not the only one to have eaten a squirrel….In other notes, Zoe went into the woods yesterday and brought up some hickory nuts. I have never tasted one before, but man they are GOOD. Almost have a banana bread taste. Guess what we’re doing today?
Come and pick all the persimmons you want! You know where the tree is……and I would like some hickory bread delivered to work, please and thank you! 😉
Such lovely photos and entertaining comments…I always look forward to your blog!
