In the pond, I saw blue heron again. Different from yesterday’s standing still, this time he/she was walking slowly in the shallow water, from the rotten wood in one side to the water shore in another side.
I moved my feet accordingly, gently, trying to avoid making any noises. For a second, thinking my existence might make her/him feel insecure, or being bothered since this bird’s solitary feature, I blamed myself. But I was weak, I couldn’t stop my attempt of observing her/him. It might be an addiction, but comparing with so many addictions, it is not that bad. I will try my best to be careful. But I have to admit my greed. When I was trying to approach a little bit more, he/she flew away like a dinosaur
月见草是这个时期最能引起我兴奋的野花。这源于它那如柠檬一般清丽的淡黄色，娇美的花朵，沁人的甜香。垂柳下的那处溪塘，久久不见，塘水几近见底，塘围的棕褐色石块被晒出了两道线。而它对面的那片空场上，却现出秋的葱茏。野花FLEABANE, PRIMROSE, 一片新生的黄绿色一直延伸到远处的林缘。
贴着游乐场边的灌木从边走。这里聚生了紫茎的泽兰，向着公园往家走。灌木白海棠的叶子稀落得像是处处破了大洞的棉絮。REDBUD, DOGWOOD, 那棵树下，黄橙的树叶落在地上，落出一片橙黄的圆形树荫。昨天的雨一下子让草坪返绿不少。近河岸边的小草葱茏，一片欣欣然。
Me and my son were having an after-dinner walk when the shower came. I speeded up, leaving him ten meters behind me. Occasionally I stopped to check him, making sure he was in my sight, just as I did when he was a little boy. People seemed not being bothered by the shower, nobody ran, everybody kept the same pace.
In the pasture outside the wood, the dramatic changes left me a gasp. Just in one day, it turned too thin to be recognized. Yesterday I stood here, watching the delicate yellow leaves falling from a Chinese locust. That’s a beautiful live show about nature. I named it “leaves shower”. The seasons change quickly. How fast the grasses turns to green in early spring, then how quick they will turn to brown or yellow in early fall.
In the wood, there lied much more leaves on the walking trail. Above my head, yellowish green, yellow, brownish yellow…these colorful leaves dotted in green leaves… Nature likes a non stop loom…so true.
