This first view is a one week update from one of last Saturday's photos. I still wanted the cows in the pasture, but the grrls were just coming out of their barn from milking when we passed.
I simply turned around from the pasture and this was what had been behind me! Not too bad a scene in itself.
Up on Ridge Road are these trees in a lovely yard. A leaf carpet can be wonderful to play in and to mulch, but can't say much for it otherwise!
We stopped to get eggs from Kota's family. While stopped and talking with his dad, I looked up to see this oak cathedral overhead. It reminded me so much of being in the back seat of the '55 Buick Special and all the trees looked like this from my child's perspective.
