Walk to Work

I walked to work through the woods to the nursery today for the first time since June. I expected my trail to be overgrown but it wasn't. I had to kick a few fallen branches out of the way, the biggest issue were the spiders, a stick was a necessity, waved before me as I walked.

The creeks were completely dry, silent, no sound of trickling water. I missed it. Not so strange at this time of year, but I hope we'll get enough rain this autumn to get them flowing again soon. The woods felt very much of the season, leaves yellowing, the undergrowth thinning out.

The humidity returned today, the dry air gone now until another cold front blows our way.
