A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

The Changing Colors and a Poem

Two bushes that I've had the first an American Cranberry.... The second at my old house...a burning bush just starting it's color change...



Autumn Fires
Robert Louis Stevenson (from A Child’s Garden of Verses, 1913)


In the other gardens And all up the vale,

From the autumn bonfires See the smoke trail!

Pleasant summer over And all the summer flowers,

The red fire blazes, The gray smoke towers.

Sing a song of seasons! Something bright in all!

Flowers in the summer, Fires in the fall!
I loved Robt. Lewis Stevenson's poems as a child...and still do to this day.
Have a nice weekend...Balisha
