Sunday Surprise

What a morning!

I took a walk up to the top of the lane to see if the deer were down by the mule's mineral lick.
They heard me but stopped so I could snap a shot of them through the trees.

With a flip of their tails, they were gone.

I watched the fog for a while and then the sun broke over the trees.

This sun flare was accidental. I was trying to get a shot of the mules or horse with the sun rim lighting them. But this will do. 

The girls wanted to rotate into a fresh pasture, so I let them into the messy section. Uffda, there are still burdock and stick tights in that section.

Looks like I will be cleaning tails again.

My laptop took a dump on me this morning too. Something about a stopcode error and then bam, it updated and then un-updated. 
I may have to take it the 'puter folks in town.
When I made coffee, the filter folded over and I had uggum-nasty grounds in my first cup.

Maybe this was just a signal that I should just turn back the day and repeat Saturday instead of doing Sunday.

I had another creative idea mucking about in my head, so I looked for a big heavy book in the afternoon and went out to look for colorful leaves with Charlie.

I was given this book a few years ago by my neighbor's father. I took it and stashed it away. I wasn't into birds but I didn't have the heart to tell him.

Imagine my surprise when I opened it to put leaves in it, that this was a treasure!
Published in 1904?
The plates inside were gorgeous. 

Which leads me to the next picture!

I wandered the north hillside under maples, oak, and some wild apple trees. This is the first time in weeks that I could just walk through the forest and not be attacked by swarms of mosquitoes.
See? I am in the woods without a head net, though one was in my backpack.

Thank you Auntie Ida from Ludington, Michigan!

The day did get better thank goodness.
I got enough leaves to press and dry. Now to see if I can put some of my summer flowers in a picture frame.

Nothing quite so good as a happy ending.
