“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

Flashback Saturday, October 20, 2012 – This is today’s pick photo and it stars one of the last petunias of the season enjoying the sun. This next week we are expecting rain and the temperatures are dropping.
October 20, 2012 sig Flashback Sunday, October 20, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars a dragonfly on my neighbor’s ornamental fruit tree. I had a dream about dragonflies today and this is why I chose this picture.
October 20, 2013 sigMonday, October 20, 2014 – Today is the 20th day of the month long poetry challenge and I took advantage of the beautiful sunny morning to go out to visit some trees in my neighborhood.  I decided to focus on an ash and a larch.  I also saw a single variegated meadowhawk dragonfly and it became the subject for today’s poetry prompts.

  1. Really happy to have discovered your beautiful blog and pictures! Nature and grace are fused together and one cannot exist without the other! Thank you for sharing the beauty 🙂

    • You’re very welcome and thank you so much for stopping by! This is the first time I’ve done any kind of poetry or writing challenge. Usually I have found uplifting quotes to go with my daily picture project with the occasional haiku. This has definitely been a stretch and I’ve been happy to learn from reading the poems from my fellow participants. Thanks again and kind regards ~ Raven

      • Well you’ve been doing a smashing job of writing the poetry – it doesn’t feel like a ‘stretch’ at all. Do keep writing! 🙂
