The summer looking more like autumn; hardly a reason to be sad, the Golden Rod as bright and breezy as ever were Buttercups and Daisies.

  1. Yipee, Diane, I am happily experiencing the departure of winter and the new growth of spring. The deciduous trees in Castlemaine have their new, bright green leaves. In the bush, it is peak season for wild flowers including native orchids.


    • Oh, Margaret – so sorry I missed your comment and am replying so belatedly! Thank you for your beautiful description of winter into spring in the bush! I love that blogging makes the world so small. Thank you and blessings! XO


    • Thank you, Lauren! Yes, I am enjoying the cooler temps and my cats are getting in the cuddly, even under the covers, mood now. Hope we can all enjoy a long sunny and not too cold autumn … just right for enjoying the changing leaves and fresh air. Must be really beautiful where you live. XO ♥


      • I can just imagine your cute, cuddly cats, Diane! It is real pretty here when the leaves start changing and it’s a nice change from southern Calif. when we lived there. Here, we have more of the four seasons…enjoy the rest of your day! xo ♥


  2. Oh Diane this is gorgeous! Both words and beautiful illustrations. A gentle lesson and reminder for us that each season is beautiful in its own special way. And a very much needed reminder I think, as we can easily begin to feel sad as summer gives way to cooler weather and the prospect of shorter days.

    Lots of love and blessings

    ❤ Xxx


    • Hi, Christine, and thank you! It is very simple … but sometimes that’s all we need to put things in the perspective of gratefulness. I was thinking of posting it, and then I read Martin’s beautiful poem and thought it was a perfect follow-up. Lots of love and blessings right back to you. XO ♥
