A GLIMPSE OF THE COLOURFUL LADY!
It has been quite wet and damp here for a few days so I have not really been out much. This morning, although it has been drizzly, I went out for a little walk with the dogs. Out of the corner of my eye I glimpsed a familiar image. Lady Autumn was peeking out from behind the Maple tree. I wasn't sure at first but then she made the wind blow just enough to drop some of her slightly changing leaves from her branches. As I looked around I could see how much there is to do before she settles in for her visit. Gardens to be attended to, planters to be safely tucked away and all of that outdoor furniture to be brought up to the screened in room out of the winter weather. I am a little sad to see the summer take her leave but I welcome Lady Autumn for she brings with her crisp mornings, warm fires and a blanket of jeweled colours. I hope she stays awhile before her sister the White Goddess shows herself.
