The page turns and we're into another month. September - a month of beginnings, a month of endings. Beginning school (although the public system here is in the midst of a teacher's strike so school won't begin tomorrow), ending summer.
There's plenty of sunny days ahead in this month, typified by the photo above. Trees here in central Alberta are faintly yellow. The morning air is crisp. But the blue skies beguile me into thinking we have long weeks left to enjoy. We'll see.
This pileated woodpecked is not making healthy choices. Instead of all the natural stuff, she's choosing to look for bugs in a creosote-soaked telephone pole. Some birds!
We're enjoying our little getaway - visiting Tim's family in Alberta. Will be checking in from time to time. Have a wonderful first day of September!
