Sometimes it's a Monday - and the day is just perfect - mid-to-high 60's - nice breeze - sunshine - perfect Keweenaw blue skies - and the driveway calls - and a girl's gotta go for a walk.
She notices more changes in the tree tops.
Some of the tall pines are changing, too.
She stands near the base of a pine and looks up.
Locked and loaded. . .
and getting ready to drop some needles.
The one on the right is a bit more stubborn.
Still mostly green.
She walks a bit further and looks down. Not a lot of leaf action yet.
There's that fern she showed you a while back - now mostly brown.
Still some green ferns in the woods, however.
Aaahh, those tree tops are whispering again.
Finally, the beauty in looking ahead.
Yes, Cocoa, she's coming.
The property, the dog, the beauty of God's creation and the man she loves down there by the barn - a perfect day.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
