I spent a quiet afternoon in the yard yesterday after work. Chores were nattering at me. There was a chicken coop that needed cleaning, a compost pile to add to, if not turn. There were bowls to clean and fill. A diffuse light came through the clouds and trees. By the calendar it's fall, but it's warm here still. We did have that short brief freeze earlier in the week and the vegetables wear their burmt leaves like battle scars.
