Sunday Reflections…

The color is really changing in the landscape now. The Maples and Dogwoods are at peak. I try to keep my eye on the changing colors every Fall. It’s such a beautiful time of the year 🍁 But, blink and you’ll miss something. You just gotta get out there to enjoy it 😊

Fall color is here today, gone tomorrow… Get out and see it now 😊

”In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.”

~ Rose G. Kingsley

Have a Happy Day!

Sunday Reflections…

I was sipping my coffee waiting and watching the sun come up 🌞 when I thought ‘tomorrow is the last day of September’… Wow! I don’t know if it’s just me, but this entire year has just flown by! And it always seems to speed up more when we get to the holidays!

The Fall Color is Coming! 🍁 Taking a ride or walk to enjoy the Fall is one of the joys of the season.

I always try to really enjoy each season as they come, I just feel like there’s a need to slow this train down a bit 😊 I am ready for the color show that is to come 🍁 And looking around the last couple days, it’s already started… I’m gonna go for a ride in the country today for a prequel and take note of what’s happening. Fall is such a beautiful season!

“Spring comes with flowers, autumn with the moon, summer with the breeze, winter with snow. When idle concerns don’t fill your thoughts, that’s your best season.”

~ Wu-Men

Have a great Sunday,

Saturday Fun & Saturday Songs…

Do Saturdays still hold any excitement for you? The idea 💡 of something to do with no other agenda except to have fun 😊 I always liked this old song, even though his sister was the better singer 👩‍🎤

 

Have a great Saturday!

Monday Morning Moment of Zen | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, Tennessee

I got out in the gardens a little bit yesterday. It was such a beautiful day! Warm-ish and sunny, it strangely felt like a breezy Spring day… The soil is so soft from all the rain & warm temps & the robins and other birds were pulling worms 🐛 out of the ground and singing.

The birds were out in force feasting on seeds, berries & worms 🐛

I took this short video from above one of my Waterfalls looking down the stream as it flows away.

 

“I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.”
“We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.”
   ~ Oliver Herford.
Have a a great day!

Sunday Reflections…

What a beautiful Sunday morning! We are in October now, but this last week has felt like July! I suppose I could fuss about it and say it’s too Hot for Fall, yada, yada… But, I’m not 😊 I prefer to think of it as an extended Summer gift 💝 I’m gonna get out today and work up a good Fall sweat & enjoy it! I hope y’all do too 😅

A great day to look for that lost salt shaker…

“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house. So I have spent almost all the daylight hours in the open air.”

Peace 🙏🏻
