Wandering in the Mists.

Blessings, Darlings!

We are coming off a week of cool - almost fall-like - weather (if Fall meant 70 degrees and no rain.)  Today starts a week of more 'normal' hot weather.  As a result, last night was a Fog Night.  That's not unusual here - our subdivision tends to get very thick fog.

But last night I was outside relaxing as it developed, and it was back-lit by the Full Moon.  It looked amazing. 

The fog crept in from the East.  First it filled in the low areas of the fields, leaving the ridges still visible.  All of the stars were blotted out the stars in East.  There were a few holdouts in the West, and Mars - at about midpoint in the night sky - fought a valiant battle against being obscured.

The fog thickened, covering the ridges, then the trees.  By dawn visibility was almost zero. 

But now most of it is gone, wisps only remaining by the Rivers, probably making walking the old Tow Path full of encounters with the shades of the Civil War dead. 

For Autumn is a-coming in, and Summer's going away oh.

Frondly, Fern
