"Have you ever noticed a tree standing naked against the sky,
How beautiful it is?
All its branches are outlined, and in its nakedness
There is a poem, there is a song.
Every leaf is gone and it is waiting for the spring.
When the spring comes, it again fills the tree with
The music of many leaves,
Which in due season fall and are blown away.
And this is the way of life."

- Krishnamurti

Our autumn here is still beautiful This is quite unusual for this time of the year. There are still flowers blooming and some trees have still some coloured leaves.

Summer has suddenly come to an end, and autumn is in the air.

The winds that blows -
ask them, which leaf on the tree
will be next to go.

I just had to add this lovely image from the' Japanese Garden' post.



Sorry everyone, can't show the image.

http://www.destination360.com do not want us to post their images.
I have already put a note in the waiting room for patients, that like to look at Givnology, that we are not allowed to show some images, even if it is for educational purposes. Frown

Let us look to the animals for enlightenment.

Autumn is with us for a short time only.
Soon it is winter.

You are right yoko, autumn is here.
The weather is getting cooler and the trees have just a hint of yellow and red. We do not have a great deal of autumn colours yet because our summer was unusually hot.
The plants and trees a a little bit confused Confused

Soon we will see this:

You are right girls, autumn is definitely here. It was cool this morning, but you are right Inda, the trees have not yet changed colour, but there is a yellowish glow to the leaves. Soon they will be all yellow and red.

Love,
Vicky

I agree, autumn is here, and it was cold early this morning.There is a definite change in the air.
The leaves are still green here, but we have a different type of flowers, than in the spring or summer, blooming in the gardens right now.

Thank you for the lovely images yoko, and for bringing back this thread.
Autumn is here again with all its beautiful colours.

I have added another beautiful picture from one of your earliest posts.

“The smile that flickers on a baby’s lips when he sleeps- does anyone know where it was born? Yes, there is a rumor that a young pale beam of a crescent moon touched the edge of a vanishing autumn cloud, and there the smile was first born in the dream of a dew-washed morning.”

― Rabindranath Tagore

Inside of us, there's a continual autumn. Our leaves fall and are blown out over the water.
