I went for a very long walk today; given the weather god was presenting a “quick...this won’t last long” window of opportunity I seized it and enjoyed the changing of the seasons.
There is something special about a fall walkabout. I motored along for the first half which brought me to a little diner where I stopped for breakfast.
It was on my return, with a full tummy, that I took in the offerings Mother Nature was sharing.
In this set of photos I have chosen to get in for a closer look...sometimes that's what it takes to really see what is there.
And since I know you weren’t with me on my walk, I took these photos to share with you. I like to pay it forward, so enjoy! (click to enlarge and really get in close, like I did)
This last photo is from my garden...a happy gnome makes for a happy home!
As I write this, and get ready to press publish, I hear the rain pelting down on my porch. Wee dog is a wet mop...she has just been out communing with Mother Nature.
Many of you deal with horrific weather so I try not to complain about a little rain or the damp chill of winter - I am grateful and I do thank the weather god for gifts like today.
Do you make the most of a beautiful day? What do you do when the sun breaks through the clouds and calls your name?
