Signs of Winter Approaching








I drove to Houlton this morning for a riding lesson from a new lady. It was cold and rainy and I was soooo tired. It's nearly an hour's drive one way. As I was driving back into town, I could see the Canadian geese gathering overhead. Then I looked into the stream by the bridge. The water was covered with geese. I drove to a little lot, went down the stairs ( and we are talking a lot of stairs) to take pictures. I am trying to get in the habit of carrying my camera with me.
As I came closer they swam farther away. These pics don't do justice to the sight before me. There were literally over a hundred of them.
They, too, know that winter is closing in fast and are preparing to leave.

I wish my video had sound. It's a bit blurry but gives you an idea how many there were.

That is so cool that you learned how to post a video. I loved it! Are you sad to see winter approaching? I was always a little down during that time, dreading the winter - but there is something to be said about having all four seasons! At least enjoy that for us:)

Wow, this is amazing. Yes, we feel winter in the air here too.
Thank you for the sweet visit. Scarlet tea, is a loose leaf tea, that has dried blueberries, cranberries, papaya oils. It is wonderful! I buy it at our local health food store.
