The first splash of sunlight on the riverbank across and just downstream from the cottage. 

We've had clouds and a bit of light rain this morning. Yesterday afternoon and last night, the rain was much heavier and included thunderstorms. Now, though, it looks like the sun is coming out. 

Sycamores & woodbine.

We needed the rain. Plus the fact is, I like these cooler temperatures, none of this is offered as a complaint.

A couple of mornings ago I took a few photos around the cottage. The early light was warm and soft, no doubt diffused by humidity—a harbinger of those above-mentioned storms.

Since it's been awhile, I thought you might like to see a few recent stream and yard views.

the view, the feel - is peaceful and beautiful, I could sip my coffee on the rivers edge for hours and never get enough of the natural beauty and 'feel' of natures glory. Thank you for bringing your natural world to me, I love it.
Love Gail

Glad you liked seeing a bit of how September looks hereabouts. Truth be told, I probably spend more time than I should looking at the river and what's going on with its residents. Endlessly fascinating and ever changing.

I did enjoy those photos, thank you very much. The storms that dumped wonderful life-saving water on you gave us a display of lightening and thunder that shook the house and left little moisture to make it count. So is our story this year and last. I hope things change next year. We do live in the middle of corn and soybean country! Need Rain!

We haven't had much rain lately—say the last couple of months. But there's been enough, I guess, though I think a lot of gardens have gone wanting. We live in corn and soybean country, too.
