Color Changes

Fall is making its entrance, and the warm weather has people predicting that the leaves won’t stay on trees very long.

Recently I basked in the glorious sunshine that cast a special vibrant glow on the trees.

I love the three-toned trees this time of year.

I am surprised to still see butterflies fluttering and hear crickets in the thick grass, but am going to enjoy nature’s concerts as long as it lasts.

In mid-October Cicadas were still singing, and birdies are doing their thing.

The lake continues to provide peace and perspective.

Maybe I can sneak away to a nature preserve in November to forest bathe a bit.

But the local parks have plenty of beauty to offer.

This week the colder weather will call for coats and socks instead of t-shirts and sandals.

It has been lovely to have summer linger for a bit though.

I hope the color change holds for a little bit.

Here’s to joyous days playing in the leaves.

Seasons are a wonderful reminder of the cycles in life.

Enjoy your pre-Halloween week!

Hello, Lake!

It’s still wire bending time in the studio, but I did have a chance to stroll by the lake during two balmy weekends.

Yesterday’s snow flurries remind us it is still winter, but for a moment Spring was real!

Harbingers of spring give me warm fuzzies.

Walking in nature is so important for balance, but it has to be warm enough to do so.
