It was October again. A glorious October, all red and gold… ~ Anne of Green Gables.
It’s Friday – blessing list day. And I’m having problems keeping it to five. Which, I suppose, is a blessing in itself 🙂
But seriously – look where I live . . .
October on the Island is a continual feast for the eyes
and for the soul.
I wish I could whisk you all here somehow, so that you could look up into that clear blue endless sky and inhale the spicy autumn air and walk on a brilliant leafy carpet beneath a burnished gold and scarlet canopy.
This glory is brief – we all know it. Maybe that’s why we treasure it so much.
Close your eyes and it’s easy to imagine a horse-drawn buggy coming around the bend on this quiet heritage road.
Follow a winding footpath deep into the woods and find a hidden pond.
It was achingly beautiful here. Not a breath of wind stirring. Not a ripple on the pond’s surface. Just a perfect mirror reflection of trees and clouds and sky. So quiet.
Well . . . perhaps not so quiet. We were there 🙂 It was the perfect place for our annual Thanksgiving hike. We were missing our little UK family and Nora, who had to work this year.
