the forecast was for buckets of rain,
strong winds, and more gray skies.
instead, we ended up with a gorgeous, balmy day.
harlow and i
went for a walk
and stumbled upon this
japanese maple in flame
for us islanders,
it is such a an autumn treat
to see such reds, oranges and fushias
a couple of blocks later,
finding a rhodo already shooting out its first blooms.
wishing everyone a lovely friday.
