I don’t find trees showing off their fall colors in my neighborhood. Instead, I find evidence of fall when the marsh grass starts changing from green to brown.
My neighborhood is surrounded by salt water creeks and salt marsh. It’s a small, friendly neighborhood where most of the neighbors know each other and look out for each other. When we are driving down the road we wave at each other as we go by. When we are in our front yard, neighbors out for a walk stop to chat.
I found more signs of fall a few weeks ago when the muhly grass in my yard displayed it’s brilliant pink.
I find many birds in the neighborhood all year long. This week I found this Snowy Egret on our dock.
This week, Amy has chosen Under the Sun as our challenge.
When we were younger, my husband and I used to spend most of the summer out in the sun and heat of coastal Georgia. These days, we have to protect our skin and we can’t take the heat like we once could. Now when we want to get out and enjoy a beautiful sunny day we go for a boat ride. There’s a top for shade and we make our own breeze as we ride through the coastal waters.
This Sunday was a beautiful sunny day, perfect for a boat ride.
