Signs of Fall - Maine foothills 2014

We have had extraordinary warm (hot) weather these last few days.  The solar system is chugging away full time and the trees are being painted by mother nature.  Here are a few signs of Fall.
Apples - loved by all

Empty beds

Last delphinium - they bloomed all summer

Final flocks

Garden and painted trees

Guess which one is hungriest.

Sad sunflowers - the birds have nearly cleaned them out

Love the reds.

Milos - 9 years and 9 months old

Final pollen gatherer

Sira - 2 years and 9 months old

Beautiful backdrop - solar panels

makes me smile

Sira tries weight pull

The sport of canine weight pulling is interesting and now recognized by the UKC.  I do not believe it is something that I would really like to get into deeply - and Sira was not totally thrilled.  But we did attend a clinic this weekend - and managed to not get thrown out.

A couple of shots of her 1st and 2nd attempts.

Valentines Day 2014 snow

We ended up with about a foot of new snow this Valentine's Day - this has been a long winter.  But, the dogs enjoy it?
