sugar maples are turning, 
and so are so many others: 
popple, red maples (showing off, for sure)
sumac and virginia creeper.
rich grape and cider wine smells, too.
 a bit of longridge indigo STILL on my right thumb
 and then i met frieda.
 and her man mark
 who talked about falconry,
but really about animal behavior and biology
 and this royal one, a barn owl
 who has ears
that work by means of feathers 
(and a whole lot else)
 looking over her shoulder.
paul smith's VIC
old time skills festival
 we brought home three lovely goat cheeses
from asgaard farm.
