About the Photo

I have no idea where I got this photo. It could have been a free image from the Internet. something a friend took, or even something I took. All I am sure of is that it isn’t from my yard.

Although the mild climate here lets the nasturtiums go on growing, it seemed unfair to the rest of the Northern hemisphere to offer this pretty annual as a symbol of autumn. Canna and calla lilies, neremes, yarrow, roses, and various kinds of spirea all would be just as inappropriate.

So here you go, enjoy the last of the fall colors before winter sets in and I have to find a beautiful picture of snow. I can guarantee you that it won;t be taken in my garden!

  1. I just realized the comments don’t match the photo of the moment! Doesn’t matter, everything I posted is beautiful (I think) and your comments are all so nice.

  2. this photo reminds me of the Badlands in South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Lakota Reservation… only they are more stark than this photo… I love the beauty, and I love the selfie… take care my friend and thank you for sharing…

  3. Sometimes my life feels as if there is no time for me to enjoy things such as the beautiful colors of fall. Usually just drive by and look, but to get out and touch them or smell the fall air would be really cool. Im working on getting out more today. thanks for sharing and for your posts.

  4. I love the calmness of the water. It is something we all long for, calmness and to reflect the peace we receive as our healing progresses….
    I feel as if I can sit and stare at it for hours as I desperately need some calmness in my soul.

  5. It is so true; about serenity and beauty. We sometimes forget that there are so many beautiful things out there.
    Thank you for sharing it.
