Decay

in throes of autumn
blanket of leaves takes a turn –
the scent of decay

I have never seen this before. I am told it’s cauliflower!!! Does this count as a flower? I met this at the farmer’s market I browse every saturday, rain or shine. Some people there laughed when I said it was too pretty to eat and that I’d have to photograph it before I cooked it. Little do they know, right😊

Romanesco cauliflower .. a visitor to this blog told me …again, thank you.

For Cee’s Flower of the Day FOTD challenge.

Summer’s End

farewell to summer –
smattering of fireflies
target the garden

feels like last splash of color
truly lifting my spirits

Autumn Wind Talking

The morning wears the humidity like a cloak. Through still air, the cries of the hawk from the tree canopy. He seizes the opportunity to buzz the red tailed squirrels, bringing to a halt their morning romp. The morning gaggle of geese wander through like they own the place. All a part of the morning routine around here.

 

early morning walk
flutter ripple through trees – soon,
autumn wind talking

in trees, suttle signs
as autumn rounds the corner
more visible sky
