I confess this post has nothing to do with today's date.
It just seemed like it would make a great title and I thought it was time for an update from the Hollow.
These photos are actually from a walk a few mornings ago.
Within just a few minutes, I spotted three different types of butterflies.
You'd be surprised how loud this trickle of water is.
Not a quiet escape from the little pond to the creek by any means!
Autumn foliage drips from the trees...
...and nestles on the ground.
But there are still spring-like flowers blooming!
I'm afraid these little guys are going to disappear until spring after tonight.
We're expecting our first hard freeze.
Hope you're staying warm wherever you are!
(P.S. Tomorrow is my mom's 82nd birthday! Please send her good wishes!)
