Spiders Everywhere

Seems like everywhere I go in the garden these Fall days, I run into a spider’s web! Not my favorite garden critter!



Autumn Artistry

Autumn beauty


Autumn Artistry
~ Maude Osmond Cook (my grandmother)

With artistry the Autumn
Has hung a vast display
Of paintings rich with color,
In a riotous array.

Along the slopes and by-ways,
The aspen’s golden hues
Give accent to the maples
In crimson and chartreuse.

Beyond are purple mountains,
With sun-tipped peaks that rise
Above the hills and valleys
To pierce cerulean skies.

This brilliant Autumn showing
Will please you and enthrall,
Just bring a love for beauty,
It is free to one and all.
