FALL HAS BEGUN...

Up and early...coffee on the dock...it's a peaceful morning with just a hint of crisp in the air. Nothing that my hubbys' robe can't cure! I ventured out with jammies, "garden slippers", and my husbands' robe. As I was just trying to still focus and function after a fairly decent night rest, I looked across the pond and watched as leaves fell silently graceful to the pond. The sun was barely peeking over the back hill and the sky was still a sleepy blue with subtle shades of pink tinted clouds. The tall pines and hardwood tree tops showing up black against the sky...it was the perfect dawn. After I nearly inhaled my first cup of coffee...I just had to take a little walk around the pond to try and capture what I felt this morning! I was hoping the photo of the leaf just falling onto the surface of the pond would capture the ripples of the water! As I am preparing this post, it's a bright, warm and sunny day out. I do love fall...and even some winter...just not SO much of the latter. My waterlily photograph was put in the mix just because I can't get enough of them!! The lily was not yet opened at that time of the morn. Actually, that photo was late evening. Just so pretty all the same!
