I’ve been out and about in the neighbourhood.
I’m happy to announce that the colours are evolving for the annual fireworks 🙂 🎉
Hans Andersen Brendekilde was a Danish painter, 1857–1942.
Title: Wooded Path in Autumn, Date 1902. Painting: Oil on canvas.
I once saw a grass snake at the size of an over dimensional bicycle tube in one of the small paths.
The snake was enjoying the sun, but withdrew smoothly into the bush. A breathless moment it was.
There are several wooden bridges in the bog. They become slippery like soap during the winter months.
Always an exciting moment to climb a bridge 😊
A few days ago I walked along the edge of the lake and was treated to the crunch and rustle of leaves with each step I made. The acoustics of this season are different and all sounds, no matter how hushed, are as crisp as autumn air.

Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing?
Can one really explain this? No.
~ Pablo Picasso
All colors are the friends of their neighbors and the lovers of their opposites.
~ Marc Chagall
I was inspired by Steve McCurry’s blog
Autumn is the wonderful time of year for a walk in the mountains. This image of mine is from Norway on our way to Grimsdalen, Dovre.
He found himself wondering at times, especially in the autumn, about the wild lands, and strange visions of mountains that he had never seen came into his dreams. ~ J.R.R. Tolkien
The morrow was a bright September morn;
The earth was beautiful as if newborn;
There was nameless splendor everywhere,
That wild exhilaration in the air,
Which makes the passers in the city street
Congratulate each other as they meet.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
…Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all!
Flowers in the summer,
Fires in the fall!’
Robert Louis Stevenson
A tree is a tree – how many more do you need to look at.
Ronald Reagan, California Governor
Farewell we call to hearth and hall!
Though wind may blow and rain may fall.
We must away ere the break of day.
Far over wood and mountain tall.
By J.R.R. Tolkien, Lord of the Rings
It’s time to wander!
