Gold and Blue

Inspired by my yellow David Austin rose ‘Graham Thomas’, who, at this moment, as October blusters to a chilly end, is bursting with dozens of new buds.

I’m not fond of the screeching, bullying ways of our sassy Blue Jays. But even I cannot deny their astonishing beauty.

Our recent days of golden sun and intense blue skies have bowed off the autumn stage. But Graham’s incandescent blooms still brighten our office window sills and we more than appreciate the abundance of this mighty rose.

Our trees are just beginning their autumn performance, so I offer this last taste of sun and sky, a prelude to the warmth of a golden fire, cherished old volumes and the coming coolness of the season.

I hope this finds each of you recharged from a weekend of satisfying creative pursuits and I wish you a new week of adventures that are even better than you imagine!

Thank you so much for your visits and comments – each one is a treasure to me.

Are you having a good week? I truly hope you are! Another GORGEOUS day here in Seattle. I’m feeling a bit buffeted about, like a leaf sailing through the cool autumn air, but I’m trying to enjoy the ride!

And a surprise…

Sunlight angling lower by the day gilds the simplest scenes.

This week in Seattle we are having just delicious weather. Wednesday was clear, 70 degrees and as lovely as any day this past July. My three-mile walk around Green Lake looked like summer – the trees showing the merest dabs of color. A bit of rain last night cleared for another gorgeous, bright morning, but a shiver of coolness hastened my pace as I tackled the lake walk again. And the forecast for at least a week of the same makes me relaxed and happy.

I love apples, sigh…

I hope you are enjoying a memorably beautiful autumn, or to our friends below, a truly stupendous spring. I’d love to hear how you’re spending it.

I’d like to thank two wonderful bloggers for featuring my work this week.

Sandy of Sandy a la Mode featured my Vintage Harvest note card set in her Flavors to Follow: Pumpkin post. Sandy’s blog is so lively and entertaining – one of my favorites and I know you will enjoy it.

And sweet Ivy of Grace and Ivy featured some of my tree images in this post. I’ve only recently become acquainted with her blog but it’s beautiful and she takes readers on the most fabulous Virtual Vacations which are so much fun, you will not want to miss a single one.
