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!
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!
At least the queen’s crown is melting off.
Within a week the tree trimmers came by.
Soon the trees will be green.
Loving the blue skies.
Harbingers of spring give me warm fuzzies.
Here’s to a speedy melt of yesterday’s blanket.
Walking in nature is so important for balance, but it has to be warm enough to do so.
It is Fall!
I love the beautiful jewel tones of the season.
Summer is still holding on here and there.
We had a few chilly days that got the radiators going.
But now we have warmer weather to where strolls in the park are enjoyable again.
Soon there will be piles to toss around.
The earthy scents are lovely too.
The beachfront has lots of color.
Golden hues abound.
Fuzzy flowers add their brightness.
Radiance is everywhere.
Seasons are a beautiful thing (as much as we gripe about the weather at times).
What’s your favorite season?
Life is blooming here with trees awakening and birds beginning to nest.
Blossoms abound in wide arrays of color.
Tulips are the most dominant beauties this month.
Sunshine and warmth brings so much joy.
The amazing colorations of these flowers are fascinating.
Even showers cannot dampen my spirit with all the color and fragrance.
My favorite, the forget-me-not is in bloom as well and makes me so happy.
I also captured a cabbage white butterfly on camera. This is the third one I have spotted since April.
Magnolias are mesmerizing.
Wishing you a vibrant, joyous day!
