Freeze/thaw/freeze/thaw

Once again we ride the roller coaster.
The freeze- thaw cycle continues.
Today we were on thaw.
The temperature is 59.9 degrees Fahrenheit.
The wind is calm. It will shift soon.
A cold front is moving in.

Milkweed pods have opened


sending seeds floating lazily about the backyard.

A feather fell onto the dried rose.

An Autumn leaf still clings in the neighbor's fence.

Breathtakingly beautiful, Sherry.

The milkweed pods reminded me of my childhood. How I ran after them in my vain bid to catch hold of one as even a gentle wind would blow them away.

Lovely.

*cheers*

Thanks for the photos of things brought by the wind.

Hope you're able to warm up a littel before the cold hits again.

Imprisoned leaves always make me sad.

Great photos as usual.

These are each beautiful! I like the single seed and the leaf best.
