Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Autumn Colours and Reflections~

Autumn Colours and reflections from Tingsgrove and beyond. 
In order to get beyond our long journey images and posts, I am going to log in 2 posts with Mosaic Monday and Wildbird Wednesday this week. 
I hope that no one will mind.  I just have so many images that I had wanted to share and this was the best way that I could think of to do it.

Have a wonderful day and a blessed week~

I am linking up with Mary for:

Mr. & Mrs. House Sparrow~

Yellow Rumped -Warblers become more easily seen, once the canopy of leaves begins to fall~

Gray Squirrels are busy burying nuts to get them through the coming weeks and months~

A Chipmink has made it's home not in the ground, but in a hollow branch of one of our Dogwood trees~
I had taken these images of the bursting Milkweed pods and only after I came home and imported them into my photo program, noticed that I had also gotten this Grasshopper~

The Crabapples on the tree across the fence from our home, is fully loaded with fruit.  I am looking forward to the arrival of the Cedar Waxwings that shall come and partake any day now...yeah~
Cullen is one of our 3 year old twin grandsons and he and his brother Kerrick below, were enjoying some leaf fun~
One of my favorite trees in our yard.

  14. Hi Mary,

    Well, I'm here, just a year and a half later! But, no matter, I can still enjoy the beauty of autumn any time, and your crisp and copper-y images have truly captured the essence of the season, full of rustic richness and rich, autumn hues. Critters and cute grands and winged lovelies, all appreciate its finery. Thanks so much for sharing the gorgeous landscape around your home.
