Solitude

I enjoyed a solitary walk in a snow-covered Holden Arboretum recently. For 90 minutes I wandered the trails without meeting another person. Ninety minutes of snow-covered solitude is  a very peaceful experience.  Although the walking wasn't always easy, the landscape was beautiful. It's truly surprising how different the Arboretum looks when the ground, trees, and water are covered …

A trio of snowy noses

Deer are curious critters, especially in the winter when they think you may be carrying some delicious treats. Unfortunately for this trio, I had no treats, but I was carrying a camera. The snowy noses are the result of foraging for food buried under the snow. Trail Walker Trio

No turning back!

Summer is almost over. Autumn is making its way into northeast Ohio, and there's no turning back! This rudbeckia is proof-positive of the fact. Sigh! I snapped this end-of-summer flower in the Butterfly Garden at Holden Arboretum this afternoon.There were no butterflies. Carolyn aka Skip
