It's amazing how fast it's getting dark now, but it's still nice out. When I got off work tonight I drove home with all the windows down.
I drove slow ( 45mph) as I worry about hitting a deer. Neat thing is that you can really hear all the night sounds. It was a buggy orchestra tonight. I even heard some deep frogs joining in.
There were low, on the ground, patches of fog. When I would drive through them I could feel the chilly damp air touching my skin. Also the fog traps more scents and I could take a deep sniff and smell the pine trees and hay that has just been cut. Also a sweet scent, I know I don't pass a field of flowers as I don't see it on my way to work in the daylight but I swear that tonight I did. Maybe some night blooming flower?
I also saw a bat flying under a street lamp getting the big juicy bugs. ( I love bats! ) I have heard that you can build bat houses like you do for birds to encourage them to hang out and live at your place. I think next year I will look into that. Also I need to get some bird houses. I know, I know, get 2 cats and now I am thinking about trying to get birds hanging around. I swear I don't mean anything mean by it!
