It's September and I'm really not ready for the fall season! I'm still wanting those warm days with the hot sun, a good book on my ipad and the quiet afternoons on my deck with the birds and lizards. I've started looking in my closet for summer things that I haven't worn! And I'm thinking of things that I want to do before the first snow in late October. In the meantime there are beautiful places to visit and help ease the transition into fall.
Visiting the lakes and taking a walk are things we love to do on a glorious day here in Prescott AZ. Wednesday's are 'free park' days and Peter and I will start making our weekly trips to all the lakes checking on the birds in the area. We went to Watson Lake and found some Cormorants, Canadian Geese, and local Mallards. It was too early for the ducks to return andI got excited about the lines of plants with a Cormorant tucked in the center.
The sky was blue with lovely billowy white clouds and many plants were blooming yellow.
Next stop - Willow Lake where the water was like glass. At the edge of the lake I found lots of Mayflies and tiny insects among the green water plants and rocks.
