Fast Forward Changes

Autumn seemed to come and go in a heartbeat this year.

My upper deck bird feeders detailed the metamorphic changes, in photos taken altogether too close together for my comfort.

October 1st: With fall colors abounding across the valley, it was time to fill my bird feeders for the season.
October 8th: after several days of hard frosts overnight, some fall color remains, but many trees are already bare. I’ve added suet bars to the feeders. This Hairy Woodpecker eyes the first snowflakes (you can just see them against the green of the spruce tree) with wary apprehension.
October 10th: Mere days later, after a wet snow followed by frigid rain and increasingly cold nighttime temps, no fall foliage remains. “Hairy” appreciates the suet bar.
October 14th: And …. It’s winter. ❄️

I’m a RV Sometimer (less than full time, but more than a weekend warrior) living in Alaska, with dreams of seeing the country in my RV. I am 70 years old and married, but my husband isn’t a fan of RV travel, so my journeys are mostly solo except for my navigators; dachshunds Baxter & Rhonda. I’m also a spinner of tales - and a spinner of yarn (my other passion). My spinning wheel, along with the dogs, go along on all my travels. I look forward to sharing my stories, including photos and videos, with you.

  1. Oh Deb, how do you stand it?? We’re nearly as bad here in upstate NY, but we’ve had the luxury of a later than usual fall, and loving it. The older I get, the more I dread the winter coming. I’m not a snowbird though. I’ve enjoyed your travels this summer, and hope you find something to keep your interest through this winter. Sue–from the old goat list.
