Crisp and golden leaves
Tired, relinquishing life
Fall softly to earth
I have always loved searching the clouds for imaginary figures that feed my imagination. In this image can you see the bank of angel faces looking down on the vines?
Ol' ragged Dan!
I cannot end this post without including the most magnificent of mornings I enjoyed yesterday. There had been much talk about the fall colors being non-existent this year due to the severe shortage of rainfall. And up till a few days ago, there really was not much color, and here it was almost November. But in a near explosion of color, after receiving over two inches of rain the previous day and night, the sun rose and illuminated the most spectacular fall morning. Ignition! We have color.. spectacular color that nearly popped overnight and will probably dissipate as quickly as it arrived. In typical years, I've noticed the red-leafed trees lose their leaves before the yellows and golds come on. But this year they all came together for a most unusual and spectacular burst of color.
So here you are. What gifts such scenes are, a feast for the eyes. Enjoy!
Next: Soon we should be getting a sneak taste from the barrels of wine! Oh, be still my heart!
