Early Autumn

I’ve been a bit preoccupied with “inside” art stuff lately, but here are a few photos from outside.

Yesterday is was very warm and today there is a gentle drizzle, so you can almost hear all the plants sighing with happiness as they drink it and feel refreshed.

Wherever you are in the world, I hope your weekend has had that effect too.

    Yeas, its been good, I went to visit a couple of “older” people yesterday and took another “older” person with me. Today I went to church and tended my little great grandchild while her mother was absent, then a daughter had a bowl of soup with me on her way home. This afternoon I visited a sick friend. {All this “older” person stuff and seeing my friend who is much younger than myself, and is wheelchair bound, makes me very grateful for the weekend I have had} And the wonderful rain! Yes I do feel refreshed by the weekend!

    Good morning. Once again some truly wonderful photographs. My favourite? Clover and bee but a difficult decision.
    My weekend is spent working. Currently -1Β°c outside. My weekend starts on Tuesday. I hope you have a great one

      The clover and bee was serendipity – I just lay down to take the clover and a bee happened along – so nice of them. πŸ™‚

      Minus 1 is a tad cold, keep warm, and enjoy your weekend whatever part of the week it occurs in.

    I just adore your photographs – you have such a fabulous eye … my favourite today is the spotted toadstool (Fly Agaric?) hiding behind those bright green blades πŸ„

      Yes, the nasty little Fly Ag – they pop up everywhere in my garden at this time of year. I do love the colours, and they are so “fairyhouse”, but now with little grandson wandering around it causes me major angst.

        Yes, they are not good news with tots about. My father succeeded so well in convincing me never to touch one that I became phobic of all fungi for years. I laugh now but really I am glad he did because the alternative of a tiny being predictably attracted to its spotty cap is not worth risking πŸ„

    What a lovely pink rose! We’re in bloom here too, but it’s Spring for us. πŸ™‚

      Thanks Christi – my roses are still blooming, 2 weeks into Autumn, but it is still quite mild here. I suspect they will go into hibernation soon.

    The pink one next to the rose – I feel I should know it but I don’t- anyway I love it!

      That’s a macro of Eli’s succulent flower – no idea what it’s called.

    Naturally, I’m drawn to the Inverted White Feather, which is also very similar to a nickname I once had during my initial, shy dating years… πŸ˜‰

      It is real. They are highly poisonous Fly Agaric Fungi – blasted things pop up everywhere here at this time of year. – just touching them can cause problems. I usually stomp them with my gumboots – or run over them with the mower. Having the nearly 2 grandbaby running around outside has increased my paranoia gigantically.
