My autumn happiness

Deliciousness under clear, blue skies and mornings clad in the color of early autumnal sunshine. 


Deliciousness under the canopy of trees way above a little white cottage 
and the girl with wild hair who lives in those woods...


And this obliging, delicious warmth with a russet tad of autumnal nippiness in it... 


How glorious... how wonderful these early days of autumn are! 


And how glorious the feelings they bring into my heart...  


...of family and friends, of leaves gently rushing down from somnolent canopies all over my soul... like a mystical golden, russet rain.  


And the scents and tastes of pumpkin spice, fresh picked apples, cinnamon and cloves... the glow of lamps through windows, candles flickering... 


Autumn is fluttering about my little world like a mystical butterfly...  


Is that how you feel too?  Do you see it?  Do you feel it in the atmosphere?  I think you know what I'm referring to... ah yes, you too have seen it!  The shift, the embrace of summer and autumn, the sky in transition...  summer transitions into fall.


I work in the garden and my heart wonders, I sweep and fluff up cushions in the front port and my soul sings.  And I wonder and marvel and sing at massive trees circling our little cottage in fortress-like manners... in manners of angels like trees...  


and butterflies in wings of orange china paper. 


I water roses and talk to birds, I pull capricious weeds and fill feeders and sweep food debris from squirrels and feathered creatures of the air and wonder and marveled and thank the Great I Am who speaks to my heart in the infinitude of voices in nature...


And is it this the same place of just a mere year ago?
I have to wonder...


I am in awe.  I am standing on a miracle...


Days melting away in a dream of pink  and purple peace...



Do you love autumn?  I love love autumnal days.  


Dancing on tippy toes on the tip of the world.  
Growing wings somewhere in my soul; 
pansies and elephant ears in the hollow of my hands...  


It is called late summer happiness mingling with autumn happiness...

that's what it is! ;)


What is it about autumn that enchants us! 

Do you love all the changes taking place all around us?

Autumn... when incidentally, the world turns magical.

  3. There is still such an abundance of color in your garden Cielo that it's hard to believe summer is fading into fall. Your rosebushes are bursting with buds that promise many fragrant bouquets for days to come. Only the carpet of crisp brown leaves under your feet give any indication that autumn is practically here. It's a lovely overlapping of seasons.
