November afternoon sky in town (view from my balcony)
Left: Birch tree “block of apartments” for town birds! (picture taken about one month ago)
Right: Three weeks ago, the birches in a town cemetery still in their golden autumn glory.
Below: Last Sunday: Defoliated birch forest out in the countryside; and “country cottage” bird house.

Going out to my parents’ old house, I got off the bus a couple of stops early,
and took a roundabout walk through the woods to get there.
Just having viewed the birch trees through my camera lens outside,
as I entered the empty house I was struck by a very similar view
hanging there on the wall to greet me.
