in the fall garden
emptying out flower pots
music from the sky

  1. Love, love, love the photo and the poem. That cobalt is stunning beside the pale red bloom. Is that a zinnia? Also love the movement (raindrops) and texture of the photo.

  2. Barb, I have a collection of blue pots. Most of them are indoors, but also use them outdoors.

    We went an hour north yesterday to see David's mom. The leaves are starting to turn up there. I have seen and heard,several skeins of geese, and two large flocks of cedar waxwings this week. I love the sights and sounds of Autumn.

    1. I remember you finding shards of blue pots,too. Our fall is coming to an end because of the snow and lowering temps. All the snow has melted except for the high peaks, so at least I can still hike for awhile.

  3. lovely
    and yes, it is that time of year.
    I agree, the blue pot is beautiful.
    Since you are talking about birds.... this morning i had a flock of robins and a couple flickers bathing and drinking in my pond. It was a wonderful sight! Lovely Sunday to you.

    1. Wow, a pond is so much better than a birdbath! I have never seen flickers in the water, but we do have them here.

      Our robins are long gone. I wish they could tell me where they spend the winter.

    1. Well, that is probably why I was so taken with the blue pottery pieces in the garden soil! I took a pottery course many years ago. It was fun, but I found that I would rather enjoy the good job that others have done than make my own.

      Are you settled yet?

    2. Another turn in the road Sandy, but it's all good. I posted today and will write more about where our journey is heading, in a little while.

      Hope all is well with you and yours too.😂😂

    1. Haiku is a fun way to express feelings in a few words. I enjoy it, and also think you would probably be very good at it.

      Is your new blog up and running?

    2. You're very kind, Sandy. :)

      My new blog is still work in progress... If I started a new one, it would be much easier but as I want to include those old posts and resize their photos along the way, it takes quite a lot of time. I hope I'll get it ready till the end of the year!

    3. I am looking forward to it, Petra.

    1. Thanks! I remember that you see the cranes every year. I know that the West has been getting snow. Have you had it yet? We had our first frost last night. It comes a month later than it did when I moved to Maine in the 70's.

    2. We have had two inches here but the mountains are getting feet now. Yes, our Frosts are several weeks later now.
