Walking in a cold rain - Actifit Report: November 9 2019

지난달

Zoey and I hit the dog park today. It’s our usual Saturday routine to get there. If I was smart I would have checked the weather report early in the day, because the day started out sunny and then turned gray and rainy. And of course that is when we went out walking. But honestly, it was a good 15 degrees above freezing, so it was comfortable.

I ritually take pictures of that bench in all seasons. If you follow my blog, you will see it again!

The early winter colors are here — grays and browns. But I love how it creates stark and dramatic scenes.

We took our usual spin around through some woods on a single track path, then down along the creek. It has been very cold and the creek is freezing along the edges.

We came upon an old lightning-felled tree stump that was festooned on one side with toadstools.

Zoey wanted to explore.

Finally we returned to the main path.

There is such lovely scenery at that park! There is even a binocular stand so you can view the wildlife.

One last picture. There was a set of trees (oaks?) whose leaves are white on the bottom.

47 degrees - brrrrr! Nice photos, but I like the last one of Zoey best, looking back at you. Is that a ball beside her paw? :)

·

Yes, she is part lab, so she loves to retrieve a ball or a stick. She was running around with a stick for a while, but then we found this orange tennis ball in the woods and she made a trade. We left it at the dog park for another doggy to enjoy.

She's definitely a beauty!

Thank you, @hafizullah and @innerblocks! I truly appreciate the curation!

Wow! I remember that chair, totally different from the last time.
Nice count by the way.

Thanks @ketcom. Yes, that view changes all the time throughout the seasons. I love the bench as a focal point. Thank you for stopping by, my friend!

Wow. Look at all those mushrooms growing on the tree!

I thought it was pretty cool, too. It's fun to see what happens when nature is left alone to do as it pleases.

Lovely photos, and Zoey looks anxious to be on her way.

We got down to 23 degrees night before last, and are expecting 18 degrees Tuesday night . . . I've never seen temps like these in November, and hope that this doesn't foretell a truly brutal winter.

Hope that you and your Zoey stay warm through it all.

Yes, we are headed into an early deep-freeze here in MN too! It's going to be one of those years where I don't get the fall leaves cleaned up until spring.

Yeah, the good thing about Tennessee is that we generally have enough nice days between the freezes to get a lot done, but the bad thing this year is that they came on so suddenly that I'm afraid we may lose plants and trees that overwintered successfully in the past.

I mean, up to a couple of weeks ago, we had highs in the 60s and 70s, followed by four nights in a row in the low 20s, one night of respite, and then 28 and 23 respectively.

Time will tell.

I still have a lot of things to plant out yet, but I'm concerned about doing so if this is the precursor to a really brutal winter.

Tonight is another night of respite, as we're expecting 41 degrees for our low, but then it's back in the high 20s, followed by 18 degrees Tuesday night.

Have I mentioned how much I miss my garden in Florida?

Oh wow I didn’t know you were from Florida. This time of year is so weird. You just never know whether it will be mild or terribly cold. I never think of Tennessee as getting super cold, but I guess I was wrong about that!

Tennessee tends to be on the milder side, and brutally hot in the summer, but winters can be pretty cold.

Our last three winters we made it to a low of minus 3 degrees Fahrenheit, which is as cold as I ever want to be, and I'm hoping our early freezes aren't a harbinger of a much colder winter this year.

Actually, I'm originally from Los Angeles, and moved to Florida in my mid-20s.
