september feeling

a garden in transition
has a comfort and rhythm to it
though autumn is just a hint in the air
the golds and browns are inevitable and honored
we also experience change in the garden of our lives
as leaves change and flutter in the gentle warm air

Very nice ELK. I turned on my fireplace for the first time today.

Lovely I can feel the transition in the air... interesting link with the change in our lives, yes it is inevitable and in general I like it.

Mrs. E said...

Garden of our lives...awesome! Love the way you captured fall!

Liss said...

Oh it's starting. I hope you embrace and celebrate fall. I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful interpretations of my favourite season.

Marcie said...

Just the slightest hint of season's changing. Wonderful collection of images. And - love your new header.

A comfort and a rhythm. Yes. Although I have only learned to embrace the end of summer in the last couple of years, I have at last learned to do so, learned to pay attention to its secrets & messages, to love this rhythm. Here the trees will be green for quite a bit longer, as you know, but leaves are falling nonetheless and filling my driveway and sidewalks, the squirrels are eating green pecans and tossing the leftovers at our heads - there will be no pecans left for us. :)

Autumn - inevitable and honored.

Ah, if only I were as comfortable with the changes in the garden of my life as I am with the changes in nature. Beautiful images and very wise words.

gorgeous 'signs'

it's happening here too

joanne said...

it's like the seasons outside help us better understand the seasons inside... there are mirrors all around us for us to notice, and know we are heard, and not alone...

i feel like a garden in transition sometimes - but more the dead of summer and not quite the brilliance of autumn. it's during the autumn that i feel most alive.

Love the crisp, blue and warm afternoons and the nip of cold at night. Love the reds and oranges of vine maples as they flame out just to show us how talented they are. Love the gourds and mums that start gracing the entry to the grocery stores, reminding us how lucky we are to perceive color.

Oh my! I never tire of looking at your photos! Today is my birthday. Aren't I lucky to have a September birthday?

Happy Autumn, Elk... You've distilled this time so eloquently. This is the time to savor, sip and gather slowly...Happy Days ((HUGS))

This is my favorite time of year! I can't wait to start having fires in the fireplace and drinking hot cocoa. I love watching the leaves turn and mulling apple cider. *Sigh*

I just found your blog by reading what Mrs. e had to say about you on another blog. Your pictures are fabulous. I want to be able to take pictures like this, but my shutter speed is so slow, they always come out blurry b/c I can't hold the camera still enough. It is only a $200 Nikon p&s, so it probably just isn't a good enough camera, but I don't know. Maybe I don't know how to set the shutter speed or use the right setting etc.

*sigh*

Anyway, I enjoyed these photos of yours and will follow you so I don't miss anything of yours in the future.
