End of Month Potpourri-October 2015


“Autumn carries more gold in its pocket than all the other seasons.” 

~Jim Bishop




The morning of the full moon in September, the sun promised to rise in a glorious fashion.  The last bright star still glowed as the sun peeked over the horizon.  So I went out into the garden to see the sunrise from different vantage points.





It was such a magnificent experience to bask in the first rays of light…..





…..with the colors expanding across the sky!

Yes the inset is a later close-up.





I spent quite a bit of time near the back fence watching the sunrise over the meadow.

I shifted to capture the pergola in the sunrise.  I thought it would be a great backdrop.

As would the grasses waving to greet the day.

Then watching the sun setting later in the day, I saw the glory of the fall foliage on fire in the golden light of the setting sun.


Fall is one of the most beautiful times in nature and in my garden.  I hope you enjoyed this glorious day with me.  I am linking in with Judith@Lavender Cottage who hosts Mosaic Monday, and with Wordless Wednesday (on Tuesday) photo linkup party at image-in-ing.


I am also linking in with the I Heart Macro meme hosted by Laura@Shine The Divine that happens every Saturday, and with Kara@A Spirit of Simplicity for Tuesday Afternoon where we are invited to celebrate a nice slow day in a busy week.




I leave you with a bit more sentiment about creativity and joy.   Feel free to download the photo and share.

  1. Ahhhh. The light this time of year is so lovely! Thanks for sharing the rewards of your early rising and again the rewards of your willingness to stay with the last light of the day as it wanes. Two of my favorite times of any day, but especially in autumn.

  2. Good morning, Donna! Your sunrise images are just beautiful. I love the pretty pink sky. Lovely captures and quote! Happy Monday, enjoy your day!
