Fortunately I chose to walk to have tea with friends this morning or I would have missed some lovely sights.   Glad I took my iPad with me just in case!

Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.
Wendell Berry


Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring. 

–William Alexander


How beautiful the leaves grow old.  How full of light and color are their last days.
–John Burroughs


Travelers repose and dream among my leaves.
–William Blake


                                       a wind has blown the rain away and blown
                                         the sky away and all the leaves away,
                                                and the trees stand.
  1. I want to thank you for being the encouragement that you are to me, and bless you by nominating you the following three awards that Cathy Craig Neil blessed me with: The Shine on Award, The One Lovely Blog Award, The Blog of the Year Award 2012.

    Blessings, Dave

  3. The berries look gorgeous, especially contrasted against that white snow!
