getting the last of the sun’s rays this morning
Autumn Is Coming August 27, 2016
We went up to the Skagit Valley for a 24 hour getaway. It was wonderful. It is such a beautiful area between the mountains and the sea. Fields of fruit trees, flowers, corn and much more . This morning I took an early morning amble outside our bedroom. I thought I was in the Garden of Eden, a pear tree, a plum tree, fruit just dropping at my feet – and then a cat appeared to confirm my feeling. She/he scampered off and disappeared in the field of corn.
Yesterday evening there was a great squawking overhead. We went out on our deck to see what that was all about. GEESE – IN V FORMATION. Superb!
I had the intention of possibly finding/buying a painting of this beautiful valley – but failing that I feel inspired to try creating one oneself. There is a lot of subject matter!
pears abound Ripe for the picking. and note all the pears and plums on the ground
