It is so good to be back writing here. Due to some dreadful health issues I had to take an extended break, but I’m on a good pain management regimen now and hopefully I will be able to post regularly again.
After some sweltering hot Summer days, Autumn has arrived with cool winds and cloud-filled skies.
I’ve been spending as much time as possible in our woods, delighting in the changes that Autumn brings.
I love the delicate, creamy blossoms of this bush against the rough, grey bark of the gum tree.
And these tiny white flowers that dot the forest floor like snow flakes.
Even the geese make a beeline for the trees these days, spending their morning feed under the shady branches, searching for grubs among fallen limbs and leaves.
Toppled gum trees that were smooth and weathered last year are now covered with richly textured lichen and lacy tendrils of moss.
Lichen covers the rocks as well, giving them a beautifully weathered look.
And of course I love the cheery daisies giving their last show of white and yellow before Winter.
