Autumn Approaching


Tree trunk-y

Beautiful days! The air is starting to have a bit of coolness to it. The light is lovely. The garden is going to sleep. Today is my dd's birthday. 26 years old. I love her so much I can hardly stand it!  So hard to believe how quick the time has gone by. Yesterday I took my sweet 87 year old dad on a picnic.  He was so excited.  We drove the golf cart to a nearby lake and ate hot dogs and chips.The wind was whipping around us, taking our napkins and putting them in flight.  The geese were honking nearby.  There were children there flying kites. Or trying to fly kites. 

When I was out walking the other day there was a leaf seemingly suspended in mid air. I tried to take a picture, which was a little hard to do - to get the depth.  It was so cool looking. I also visited my favorite tree trunk. It has a tree growing in it.  I took a picture about this same time last year. The little tree has doubled in height. 
I think it's fun to find the simple pleasures in life, like a mossy carpet, a magical leaf or a tree trunk growing a tree.  Life is good.
Do you have some simple pleasures? 
I hope you're having a great Wednesday. Thanks so much for stopping by.
