It has been a lovely autumn in Southern Indiana. In spite of drought, and hurricane, and, well, economic miseries, the trees did their part to brighten our lives. So here is a picture I took in our back yard several days ago.
Most of the leaves are gone now. We've had rain--finally--and wind, and it's looking pretty bare. But these colors are kind of nice.
You know why I took this picture? Because of the new neighbor. She moved here recently, and although I've made some overtures, she seems hesitant and a bit reclusive. Not to gossip, but she seems a little obsessive-compulsive.
Whenever I see her, although she speaks briefly, she generally ignores me. Instead, she's paying attention to some of the other neighbors. Hurts my feelings some, but hey, I'm tough.
Who can compete with birds and squirrels? Evidently not me, and not a saucer of milk.
