Went for a walk to the voting location today, and stopped for a minute to get some photos of milkweed letting loose its seeds.

It was a good day. Exercising our right to vote, exercising, and a few nice images.

Today, we drove all over creation looking for colorful leaves, and what we found pretty much bears out conventional wisdom – drought conditions this summer mean fewer leaves turning colors, and wild rain this week (several inches the past couple days) caused leaves to fall off. We saw a lot of green, a lot of brown, a little yellow, and a very little red. I took exactly three pictures of a single leaf (though the pics were of a tableau, with a leaf included), and Hubby’s numbers were about the same. We started in Quincy, Mass., at 7:30 a.m., drove through north central Mass., to New Hampshire and then Vermont, then back south to Western Mass. We stopped in Shelburne, Mass., at the Bridge of Flowers. This was my favorite image from the day, taken on the Bridge of Flowers.
