Every autumn I take photos of the sherbet-coloured leaves on the trees outside my office window. Every autumn I end up with the same dull picture. The difference this year is that it’s mid-November. And there are still green leaves on that tree.
If past seasons are anything to go by, salmon should start returning to Piper’s Creek any day. Perhaps they already have and I just haven’t seen them. Last year was disappointing–I saw two or three sickly looking fish, as opposed to the hundreds and hundreds of the year before. Given the weirdness of this summer and autumn I’m not sure what to expect. But I’ll let you know.
Meanwhile, in Hild world it’s late summer: still, hot nights, owls swooping out of the dusk to snatch away a singing greenfinch, the queen has just had a Big Idea that is going to end badly. Good times…

Beautiful pic :). The weather here has been bizarre too. No snow on or around Halloween. It's been so blisteringly hot that I had to run the car air conditioner when running errands. Then yesterday it got f*cking freezing & the extended forecast states it'll be back up to 60 degrees in a couple of days. Our weather clearly has schizophrenia.
I'd love to see the salmon. That must be incredible . . .
Keep the taunting coming – can't wait for the book :).
Jo, taunting 'r' us…
r u feeling better these days? hope so.
I can't wait to see this salmon thing in person! I hope this is a good year for it.
Hot nights and owls swooping. I'm trying to be patient….
Anon @ 3:32, yes, in some ways. No, in others.
