From My Windows Yesterday & A Bit Of This & That

It was rainy , windy and chilly so I spent the best part of the day inside puttering and taking photos of the outside lol !

OCTOBER 2018 (6 of 31)

Every day and evening for the past week we have been getting flocks of Robins arriving in our yard feasting on grubs and worms from the ground then they take to our trees and cedar hedges for the night .

The Turkey Vultures have been soaring about over  the valley in a  huge  flock . Did you know that when you have lots of them it is called a  committee, venue or volt. In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle, and when the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake.  Interesting  so we had a huge kettle of Turkey Vultures .

                          Leaves are falling more and more each day especially with the winds we have been getting !

OCTOBER 2018 (18 of 31)                                                                     It was a day of dark clouds here and there .

Then just as the late evening was here the sun had showed its light with my favorite kind of clouds in the midst of it gleaming their pretty silver and dark linings .OCTOBER 2018 (25 of 31)OCTOBER 2018 (19 of 31)

Pretty Colours , Clean Up and Wild Life

Hello all . I hope all my fellow Canadians had a lovely Thanksgiving .  We sure did  Smile

The weather had been hot and humid again the past few days but now that humidity has gone thank goodness and it is nice and cool with fresh  cool breezes .

The colours down this way have slowly been changing , in the forests there is a mix of colours with still some greens as some trees are slower to change than others but all soo pretty .

OCTOBER 2018 (1 of 1)-10When Miggs and I go for our walks  in the mornings I like to snap a few pics of the colours in and around our valley with my phone .
