early november

by grace on December 15, 2019

so…i just got back from NYC. Mom and i left on monday and got back yesterday afternoon. Right before i left i spent a lot of time uploading photos, creating drafts to post while we were gone.

it didn’t happen. plus i took approximately 3.2 million photos even though i told myself not to take so many.

but here are a few photos from the beginning of November.

Kevin and i took a lovely walk at Lincoln Memorial Gardens. The trees were a vivid yellow, but for some reason they look more green in the picture.

big buck on the road! last night when we were driving from st. louis and almost home i saw two of them together. i’ve never seen two bucks together.

the grass was still so green! it’s supposed to start snowing here this afternoon, ugh.

there are usually deer hanging out in mom’s front yard. these were all looking at me.

on this day when les and i went down to the water it was just so lovely that i took about a thousand photos.

i think this is my favorite photo of the year. les watched as the geese slowly swam up near the dock.

soo cute…i did miss them while we were gone!

now i have to do about 3 million things b4 xmas, which is coming right up.

ok then,

Lincoln Memorial Gardens

At the beginning of the month Kevin and i hiked around the gardens in the morning. what a cool place. we parked across the street for the first time and there was a nearby field that we walked in, and in a goup of trees there was this funny little house.

When we went into the gardens, a guy there told us all about some big family event they have there every year, and it takes place in that big field.

we came across a deer family who were obviously totally OK with people invading their space.

We were sad to see that this very old tree had died and they were in the process of taking it down.

It was alive at the signing of the constitution!

lots of pretty nature everywhere…

we were there on saturday august 3rd, but there weren’t many other people in the park. i wonder why it doesn’t get more visitors, because it’s a beautiful place.

ok then,
