surprises...

the trees are turning color
but this afternoon when i looked out into the back yard
 beautiful autumn-blooming crocuses (Crocus speciousus) which i probably wouldn't have ever seen if i hadn't asked David to mow the other weeds away a few weeks ago
i never even knew there were such flowers, but i'm glad i discovered them
they made my day!

this sweet faced little chipmunk and his (her?) buddy were chirping at me while i was taking pictures of the flowers. it took me a while to figure out where they were, and almost 30 minutes of sitting still, barely breathing, waiting for them to come out from under the wood. then he (she?) would run from side to side under the wood, trying to determine if i was a threat or not.

even when i did finally move, quietly whispering to both of them that i wasn't a threat, they sat and ate acorns, ignoring me. one ran across the street in search of more nibbles.
