Green to gold


I can feel summer drawing to a close. I want to stretch it out a bit. Autumn, that wonderful season is fast approaching. Like saving the best part of a dessert for last, I want to savour the end of summer slowly. Soon enough we will launch into the crisp, cool, crunchy, golden, sleepy, winding down of this year's glorious heart of warmth and green.
I came across this game in a friend's blog, struck me as fun:)

Wow, as always, stunning photographs Shelagh and I can sense the end of summer too. I may have to put on socks but I am fighting the urge to do so. I want life to slow down a little, it is just going by too fast.

"Soon enough we will launch into the crisp, cool, crunchy, golden, sleepy, winding down of this year's glorious heart of warmth and green." So poetic! Lovely choice of words.

Hi Shelagh,I'm a new girl, new to blogging and new to your wonderful diary of beautiful images and interesting stories.As I was making my morning cup of tea, watching the rain fall in sheets outside my kitchen window, I had exactly the same thoughts as you, except that it is winter I want to extend, with every thing being green and washed and fresh; the sleepy fogs, the mists in the valleys and the crunch of the frosts. Summer in Australia is harsh and definitely not my favourite time of the year;-I will just have to keep visiting you to get my fix of winter.
