Autumn colour

The wetlands are red, sandy, and white, the far trees russet and orange and yellow and some still green and here-and-there, bare grey bark and branches.
Today a brisk northerly breeze scuds the cumulus across the sky, but the sun is still bright and working in the garden, it's not cold, but if you stop moving the wind is inside your pullover and cooling your toes. Low fifties today.
Some new ducks have arrived; black, with white bottoms. And the geese are singing all night.
Today was the Mastic Beach harvest festival and games at the pavilion on Neighborhood Road. Great to see all the children having fun. Lots of things to see and do. Good job everyone!
