I begin this post with a head-scratching lament of what happened to October. Where did she go? Now, we are nearly done with November and I must guess the time-snatching Goblins are at work here. In North Carolina, we've had some truly glorious autumnal weather and I've wandered my local woods as much as I can. Week before last, I attended the Carolina Renaissance Festivalbeneath the most perfect blue sky. Some highlights from hawks to hounds.
