The last of the autumn color

Reading in my Secret Garden on a sunny afternoon

Looking up at a song bird in a cypress tree
The last sunny, brightly colored days of autumn are so beautiful. I spend as much time outside as I can!
As a child I always thought  the hours in school on such days were such a waste of time.
I enjoy all the garden work that must be done now - so much to clean up!We must have had millions of flowers this season--there is certainly a great deal of spent plant material to cut and compost this year. The resident bees have been thriving. There are clouds of bees in the garden wherever asters and goldenrod bloom and they are all over a tiny yellow flowering plant that grows in the lily pools. I LOVE to see and hear bees in the garden. I am so happy that my friend allows her bees to live here.
What beauty are you enjoying now? I would love some comments on the beauty you see in your everyday life. Some of you must see glorious sunrises or sunsets as you commute to work -for example. Or perhaps you have a lovely view from one of (or many of!) the windows in your house..... or a favorite walk you take....
Please leave a Comment !
Cordially, Colleen

There is nothing more beautiful and soul soothing as nature is. I really enjoy the pictures and your descriptions; they carry me right into your garden even though I am miles and miles away. I live on top of a high river bank overlooking the valley on the edge of my city. When it snows, like it is doing right now, I watch the snow flakes drop into the river valley below.
