I vacillate between happy and sad this time of the year; mostly happy. Sad because last night was the first frost of Autumn. I went down to the garden and picked a big bucket of flowers in the afternoon before the killing frost. Then when I was browsing through a magazine I came upon a quote that I love: “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” by Albert Camus. This morning I understand what he was saying even more. As the sun crested the horizon my Ash tree was spectacular.
I walked around the yard with renewed enthusiasm. So much color!
I snapped a photograph of the brilliant berries of my dogwood.
I guess we always have to take the good with the bad. I thought that the berries of my dogwood tree were beautiful and worthy of a photograph, maybe worthy of a painting!
Look carefully for the marmorated stinkbug on the leaf to the left!
Enjoy the day, K
