11 September 2021
The weather has been pleasant with low humidity and highs in the 70s. Chilly fall mornings produce a mist on Panther Hollow Lake.
Asters are blooming right on time …
… but this hawthorn tree is confused, opening two flowers and a leaf in September.
This eastern screech-owl confirms it’s fall when he peeks from his well known roost on 4 September. Though screech-owls breed in Schenley Park, they only use this roost during the non-breeding season.
My least favorite hot weather will return tomorrow through Tuesday, forewarned by this morning’s red sunrise.
Red sky at morn, sailors forewarn.
