"I saw old Autumn in the misty morn
Stand shadowless like silence, listening
--Thomas Hood, English author (1799-1845)
I saw all these things on my walk this morning with Rosie. A flock of geese flew over while I was out, but by the time I got the camera turned on, they had passed. They'll be back, though. They never really leave -- they just fly back and forth from the pond that's northeast to the other pond that's southwest of here. It's funny though, I usually hear them honking only during the spring and fall.
