Eisenhower Park revisited

As the weather gets colder and the days  shorter, I find I have less time and opportunity to walk though a park.  The other day it occurred to me that I hadn't been to Eisenhower Park since the middle of the summer. 

It's a very different mood this time of year.  The tennis courts are gated and locked, the picnic tables in storage somewhere, the playgrounds nearly empty, the ball fields deserted. 

I started my walk by the lake.

Interesting patterns in the clouds, and sunlight on the water. photo 20151113_143347.jpg

And just a few minutes later, the skies are almost clear.  photo 20151113_143616.jpg

Yeah, I do like to see birds.  photo 20151113_143733.jpg photo 20151113_143748.jpg photo 20151113_143756.jpg

This is near the Rose Garden, don't know why I didn't see it before. photo 20151113_144917.jpg photo 20151113_144847.jpg photo 20151113_144856.jpg

There are still a few roses, even in November. photo 20151113_144945.jpg

But you can see the fall foliage is past peak.  photo 20151113_152232.jpg
