Autumnal Blessings

On this last day of Summer I am energized and very much looking forward to the glorious days of Autumn.  And my blog friend Deborah at Temenos of the Blessing Light always sends me the best snail mail to ring in the new season.

I mingled a few new fallen maple leaves and some of the goldenrod with her lovely, velvety soft scarlet red leaf attached to gorgeous shiny golden paper with this poem...

Oh to Autumn and all of its gorgeous, colorful glory!

Thank you Deborah!

There is nothing more soothing to the soul as a soft summer rain in the early morn.  The sound of the rain summoned me from my sleep as I jumped out of bed to embrace it fully out of doors. My senses are alive as the birds rejoice in song and the trees put out a musical medley as the droplets hit the still green surface of the leaves.  As I walk in the rain, the cool sensation on my skin is the perfect remedy for 90 degree temperatures.

The plants and flowers nod in acceptance of their nourishment.

The bees are busy as the sun comes back around, ever so gently, in complete harmony with its partner in nature to go on duty.

A soft summer rain is glorious in its own right.  It is peaceful and calming and rejuvenating.  It is Mother Nature at work.

And I am grateful!
