Resuming our morning walks

Bear and I are resuming our morning walks around the Wayfarer grounds.
Even if we didn’t have a real summer this year,  I am looking forward to everything that fall has to offer, starting with cool, foggy mornings.

So, this morning we walked past our tiny apple tree. It’s been with us about 10 years – Mike planted it and there it stands.  It has never grown even an inch and this year it doesn’t have leaves.  This maybe because of the tent worms, I am not sure.

The artsy apple tree – doesn’t it look great?  I love it just the way it is.

The naked apple tree with one tiny, little apple and see, there is a spider’s web there too

...

And just look at this convoluted design.
I kept making the web quiver but no spider appeared.

And then we discovered a hornet nest in the pine tree by cottage 1
We took this picture and then went inside for coffee and a doggy treat!
