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~

Last of the Garden~

Last of the garden flowers.  
Today is going to be another October 80' temperature day and then....the bottom falls out, according to the weather person.  
So with this post I bid farewell to these beauties and look forward to viewing them when they arrive in the gardens once again~


Many of my flower images are taken across the lane in Mona's garden.  
She has recently lost 2 siblings and so I am dedicating this post to her family~

 Can you see the little Eastern Cottontail;')~  
It thought it was in good hiding from me and guess what it was and there were 2 others near by, that I could barely see at all~

Autumn's fruit begins to ripen and that means very soon the Waxwings shall arrive...yeah~

 Last season the corn stalks rose above this trumpet vines, and this years thousands of acres barely made it this height~

 I had the husby turn around so that I could get these images of Tobacco plants at sunset~

 I adore visiting Henry's Ark to check on the Wood Ducks and other creatures that have a home there~


  1. Nice blog, and it is to see the lovely Wood Ducks.

  2. i like the apples and the wood duck hen. such a pretty one. like the fence shot, too!

  3. We still have roses believe it or not. Everything else is gone. Your shots are beautiful! The wood duck is gorgeous! I like the muted colors of the females.

  4. Gorgeous light in the rose of sharon! Great shot of the duck!

  5. Wonderful post, and beautiful photos! Really like the shot with the fence in it.

  8. Beautiful!!! The wood ducks, I really like...and you know what else sets off your wonderful collage works? The bicycle. Awesome composition.

  9. Mary, your posts are always full of such beauty! Lovely flowers, gorgeous fence shot and such lovely ducks!

  10. We're heading towards summer downunder - and I'm looking forward to that about as much as you're looking forward to winter!! But looking at your marvellous photos shows me what it'll all be like in about 6 months time!

  11. I got a real feeling of warm, autumn sunshine there Mary with your lovely mosaics and photos. I too like the shot with the bicycle - very creative. It's suddenly gone very cold here - 2 or 3 degrees today and no good at all. Enjoy the sun while you can and have a great weekend.
