We get a lot of visitors here on the Cape in autumn.
They make their pilgrimage without fail every year to witness the brilliantly colored leaves along the marshes and ponds.
I spotted my very first leaf peeper the other day.
This particular leaf peeper seemed to be quite the expert, with the keenest eyes and the sharpest focus I have ever seen.
And no binoculars required.
She wasn’t the only one.
Well, as you can plainly see —
This girl o’ mine…
Just to know her is such a gift.
My morning glory.
I cried for a little tiger kitty this morning. She got hit by a car, out on the busy road where we live.
‘Probably heard a bird across the street, early in the quiet morning, and decided to cross the street.
Like she’d done a hundred times before.
The kitty actually might not have even had a home since we’ve heard that neighbors up the street had been feeding her and giving her a bed under their porch for a while now.
Still, I want to acknowledge her life.
A life that deserved some tears as it passed from the world.
I’ve been kissing my sweet Marmee all day since, so glad she’s here, with us still.
