These trees must be 50ft. tall, Jane. It is a mature forest of oak, maple, ash, birch, basswood and fir.
Autumn is beautiful but I feel saddened by it sometimes.

why saddened??

I see all the little animals, the trees, the flowers and insects all facing a very long period of cold and hardship and it makes me sad. I know it is the way of nature and all the creatures have their own survival mechanisms...guess I'm too soft hearted (headed?)

when i was a child i always felt so sorry for the rabbits in the snow....then as a adult i learnt that they are in their holes in the ground and the snow acts as a insulator...ive learn so how a seagull does not freeze while standing on ice....because they have like many animals to that dwell in cold regions ....they have what is called....countercurrent heat fascinating...even ice over the rivers help that which is unneath....

more often or not its man that upsets the balance......

so there dear lori...nature knows its way ;-)))

ps:- we have to put our thermals on......

thanks for this, Jane. I'm going to look up that "countercurrent heat exchanger"...sounds like something I could use in January! lol....I've watched the wild turkeys walking around on their sticklike legs and clawed feet and thinking "how on earth do they do it?" I
Years ago they called our winter woolies "snuggies"...(now that's a diaper, or was that huggies...oh well!) My family all learned how the dress in layers, when we lived in the far north. My mom used to say dress warmly, you can always take a sweater off..but you can't put it on if you don't have it. all these thoughts are making me feel chilly.

i remember the ice being formed on the insides of our windows...and me looking at it staring in amazement...

my little fingers yearning just to touch even tho i felt cold...i like our warm homes now...and love what was....

"snuggies" to the ready and lovely hibernating ahead...:-)
