Call the clouds what you will:
Or pink candy floss.
They are still just as beautiful.

Autumn has been and gone over here —
But I’m reliving some of the leafy beauty still.
One morning, I passed the local kindergarden
And noticed the maple leaves glowing
In the pink sunrise. They were stunning.
Hiking out into the countryside
A lovely pastoral scene unfolded,
Making me feel as if I were living
Inside a Japanese silk painting.

I had time for some lovely walks up on the West Sussex Downs while I was in England.
My first walk was wet and drizzly,
But I loved the way the countryside looked in the mist.
The sheep look a bit ram-bunctious, don’t they?
The next day, the sun broke through
And made the sky and hills sing.
How’s this for a lovely picture of friend-sheep?
This adorable creature stared at me for ages —
I loved the way she was bathed in sun rays.
And wool ewe just look at that sweet face?
I’ll go out on a lamb, and say that you’ve had
Enough of my baaa-d jokes!

A couple of summers ago, we visited the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum
In Sussex, England.
Pretty Elizabethan houses glowed under a big blue sky
And a newly-ploughed field (with a thatched hut in it)
Matched the ploughed furrows of a dramatic sky.
I‘ve got a family emergency and am off to England again. I’ll be back next week.
Until then – take care!

Every year, I fall (get the pun?)
For the colours of autumn:
From green and gold
And flaming red;
To the abstract
Swirls of burning colours.
And, of course, the shining canopy
Of leaves makes a lovely background
For a chilly October swim.
For more brightness, please visit: Our World.
Autumn is a time
When anything is possible —
Like flaming leaves glowing in the light of the rising sun
On an outdoor barbecue.
And, of course, it’s a time
For play in the autumn leaves
(This is Ruby.)
And the exuberance of a swim
Amid the autumn joy.
(This is my goofball, Simmie.)
