"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

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.

“Spring passes and one remembers one's innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one's exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one's reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one's perseverance.”

Yoko Ono

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

Thank you yoko, these are really beautiful autumn pictures. I guess autumn is coming to an end and winter is almost here. Our weather has been really mild this year, almost doesn't feel that Christmas is almost here.

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:

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.

The geese and many birds are flying south for the winter.

Calligraphy of geese
against the sky--
the moon seals it.

“This autumn-
why am I growing old?
bird disappearing among clouds.”
― Matsuo Bashō
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.

“Just as a painter needs light in order to put the finishing touches to his picture, so I need an inner light, which I feel I never have enough of in the autumn.”
― Leo Tolstoy
Nice thread.

Autumn is here and all beings need to look for a shelter for winter.

When the autumn meets the tranquillity, there you can see the King of the Sceneries!

“We pretended she'd only gotten lost in the colors of fall."

― T. Greenwood,

“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
