Our autumn and early winter were mild and colorful and wonderful.
The big Black Oak by the patio
Fall color on the southern shore of the Maumee in the evening light
Steam rising from the river with the first frosty morning
Finally, last Sunday, winter arrived.
By yesterday morning the river had frozen, but warmer temperatures during the day resulted in a thaw this morning.
I thought I had seen the last of the Herons, but I was wrong.
