This morning I sat outside on the swing and had my coffee before the rest of the household (dogs, cats, chickens, etc.) knew I was out there.

The wind feels special here. I'm sure it carries a message, but I'm just not listening properly to be able to translate. A whispering chorus, starting high on the ridge-tops before eventually reaching the valley bottom and moving past my point of reference toward the east.

There were no other sounds this morning to detract from the experience – nature’s stage entirely.

Until the dogs noticed I was sitting there. Then all calm was gone and it became a contest to see who could get the most attention. Badger's the biggest, but Chester is loudest. And Bobbie Sue most insistent.

Hi Linda! Would love to have you down here, just set the date and I'll try to cooperate :)

Fur friends were in front and I was sneaky, LOL.

Your Plant Camp sounds like fun. When does it start? I'll try to remember to do it :) Might have to poke me to remind me, though...

I don't know about this fall but maybe spring next yr.
I love the fall so. I'll let you know way in advance and work around your window.

I got black Cohosh growing, yeah had to buy it , haven't looked in the woods enough to ID and really know the nature of the plant.

I know its hard to look at all the blogs , gosh its hard enough just to do ones own blog,lol

I did my first Plant Camp last Monday on a new plant I got for the homestead, Compass Plant, its a pretty interesting plant.

Hope you can make it but the thing w/ blogs it ain't go'n nowhere and you can catch up on free time whatever that is ,lol.
