My Morning Walk

A most unusual thing happened to me on my walk this morning. It was raining lightly and I was walking along the path through a wooded area when I heard a very loud cracking sound. I had only seconds to wonder what in the world it was when a large branch landed on me.  My umbrella was squished onto my head but because of it the branch was deflected enough so I was not thrown on the ground. My umbrella is wrecked but I am okay and thankful for that. Just goes to show, you never know what can happen.

Not much farther along I came upon an extremely agitated young man ranting and raving as he paced up and down a stretch of the path. He obviously had a problem and before I left the park I saw 3 police vehicles pull up and the officers get out and go looking for the fellow. Not an average morning at all.

Although it rained in the morning by lunchtime the sun came out and it was quite a pleasant fall day. I started pulling out the bedraggled Marigolds.It's kind of sad when it gets to that time of the year when you pull out those annuals you so happily planted  barely 5 months ago. The forecast for the next few days is for showers. I think I'll do a little Fall cleaning.
What do you plan on doing?

    Thanks for coming by.   Granny Marigold


  1. It's still very warm here so I don't feel fully fall-ish.
    Yikes! The branch! I'm so glad you are okay!

  2. Yikes, I'm glad that branch was no bigger than it was! You were lucky:) So far the weather this week has been better than I thought it would be. Going to hang some laundry on the line. Unfortunately rain predicted for the two markets this weekend:(

  3. Oh my goodness! So glad you are alright.
    Our annuals are still pretty good looking in the garden so they will stay awhile longer. We are slowly putting up the Fall decorations in between being frustrated by the Reno guys.
    Take care.

  4. That is too much "excitement" for one walk. I am so glad to hear that you weren't injured by the falling branch.
    Yes, it is sad to see the end come to our beautiful annuals.
