Autumn Comes To The Ranchette

I headed off into the pasture for a constitutional yesterday afternoon: the air was cool, with a fresh breeze, but the sun was shining brightly. Weenie the cat accompanied me for a good part of the walk, but of course at a certain point other things interested her more, which is only reasonable. I also took the camera along, & thought you folks might enjoy a look at where we live as autumn comes upon us.

Dust bath or walk? Hmmmm….

  4. Oh, John! What beautiful country! I feel refreshed just from your pictorial walk. I do love the out of doors, and these photos helped me feel that autumn walk. Thanks.

  5. I love your ranchette. Mo the alpaca's love affair with Margaret Dumont seems to be over. Ships that pass in the night, I guess.
