In the picture below, you can see how low Brushy Creek is! I don't recall ever seeing a sandbar in the middle of it before, let alone one that has been there long enough to grow weeds!
Still, the trees do look pretty, and I wish I could do them justice. The orange stands out like a blaze of fire against the grey skies and stark black branches.
I'm glad I got out there when I did, as a norther hit yesterday and blew a lot of this down.
I need to rake my front hall--with five fluffy cats going in and out the front door, they bring in a lot of leaves, and never seem to take them back out.
