Magically overnight it seems the trees look green again, how can that be possible after so many 100 degree days?
The lake looks inviting again, there's more summer left to soak in the cool water!
Every spring the Canadian Geese return to our cove to raise their goslings. The babies have grown so much that now you can't tell who's Mama and who's baby!
They are attentive parents teaching their offspring everything they need to know. All summer long they live along the lake eating grasses, seeds, berries, small fish and insects. Every trip to town I see them swimming in the cove or lounging in the shade. Then one crisp fall day we hear the familiar honking and look up to see them leaving. Perfect V's high in the clouds, nature calls them to migrate farther South.
My little buddy that's lived under the hostas all summer is going to enjoy the rain, bask in the sun and count himself as very lucky to live here on Granny Mountain!
