Yuppppp, On the last couple days of August it got cold. Now I know it gets well below 0 here but 30 degrees is still cold no matter what. Every day both morning and night you can hear more and more geese fly south. And BOY ARE THEY LOUD! Mr. CG took me to the field where most of the geese and other giant ass birds mingle before they head back to warmer weather. It was really pretty, but chalk full of stupid mosquitoes. Ugg they are awful here and that is coming from a Florida girl.

At Creamer’s Field I also learned what things can be eaten that grow here ( rose hips, puff mushrooms, a couple different flowers, raspberries, and blueberries) and Mr. CG ate them all. He is the weirdest nature boy ever, loves his video games and movies and tv, but put him out in the wild climbing or snacking and he is happier than a pig in shit…. Oh boy my south is coming out, I just mean he get’s really happy. We didn’t get too close to the birds since they were half the size of us and so many. I’d rather not get attacked, even though it was very tempting to run and scare them all like a small child would. I might be 27 but I’m still 5 at heart. It was nice though and I enjoyed it a lot. I stop by every other day to see if there are still birds, and the answer is yes but fewer and fewer. I think I am going to need to buy winter clothing soon, ekkk.

The Pretty

Standard

In Florida it is typical to have lots of trees and flowers everywhere, however people plant them. Most of the nature is not natural unless you are in the swamp then everything is natural, but you won’t see many flowers. Here there are wild flowers everywhere! It is fantastic. I know I got here at the end of summer so the cold is  coming and that entails things will be dyeing, but what I have seen has still made me happy. They even have wild strawberries and raspberries growing in peoples front yard by accident. And they are dam good too, tiny with a punch of flavor. I have to say even in the city the flowers grow and that is a wonderful thing. Ok now on to some pictures.
