The prompts for this weeks Nurture Photo Challenge are red or foliage.
I like taking pictures of cattle. I really like taking pictures of red cattle. We have several neighbors with Herefords and I try to sneak in a shot or two when I drive by.
After last week’s hurricane like winds the pretty fall foliage is gone. We have gotten a little moisture this week; in the form of rain, sleet and few flakes. It settled the dust, a little. Today feels like winter.
A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long. ~e.e. cummings
October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came –
The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band.
~George Cooper, “October’s Party”
The Rancher keeps leaving early to do cattle work. Tuesday and Wednesday Cousin T needed help sorting cattle. This weekend we will be working cows at Cousin T’s and preparing to wean calves.
