Starting all Over Again

in Ladies of Hive28 days ago

Could I have been any more wrong? There are actually more green trees and I have to carefully select the ones in color. I thought we had far to go before we are even close to peak, and then the leaves started dropping from the trees. Overnight. Nevertheless, I am enjoying the displays around the area. We are indeed lucky to have such a beautiful Autumn. I enjoy watching the cycle of life represented here. The beauty, the vulnerable winter, revealing her true self, and the regeneration as it comes once again. It gives you so many reasons to be in awe of Mother Nature.

The pond has this big tree full of green and streaks of blue (yes! blue!) lichen on it. Lichen is actually part of the biological soil crust. I have always just thought of it as a parasite of sorts. But, that was until it started putting out the blue color. Now, I just think it is kind of cool.


I'm really not sure what kind of tree this is but the almost fern-like leaves are green in the summer months and very soft looking to the eye. They don't feel soft, but, even in the autumn, they show off their unique character. I like the unusual.


And, so... There must always be a flower #alwaysaflower. To color my world. Although to be honest, all I have to do is spin around and look at the trees around me today. Autumn just doesn't last long enough.

If only. But, here it is, Monday. All over again. Let's make it a good one.


Even though many places are still cleared to carry on as normal, please wear a mask when you go out and use proper social distancing.




Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Don't ever forget what a wonderful world we live in, people. Some days, it is not as easy to see, how wonderful it really is. Kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.

they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 28 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

Ooh...autum is wearing its flamboyant dresses in your place ! What a marvelous season, I can no dream something more wonderful to look at than the trees in Fall !
bisous bisous my Denise and have a magnificent week 😘

Oh lovely Denise! I think it's been too warm here for the leaves to really pop. We have some nice color, but many are just turning brown and falling right off. Ahh well, still love this time of year!

I was never such a big autumn fan I must admit, but with these blue skies in the background and with the orange seems so much more bearable hahaha

Keep them coming those walks!

Can we just do over spring and summer first before we have to do winter again??

Please please pleeeeeease.....

Love you fall photos. I can see colorful trees from my yard, but I am missing a lot staying home so much. I didn't realize it till the last couple of trips to Moms, going out through a different part of the country side and seeing not only more trees, but beautiful fall colored fields. I'm going to a country ride an new part of my life every few days. Lots of country around me. I don't want to miss more of it... no I don't !

The seasons have changed to yet another beautiful one! Autumn is wonderful, and can just imagine how it is there! But we will soon.
Have a fantastic day, @dswigle!🥰🌺🤙

These pictures look very lovely. I can feel hope and positivity. I hope you are doing well. Greetings!

Lovely photos here milady!
We are in early summer here now and some areas are already up to 34 Celsius.
So yeah another hot summer that will peak in the 50C up north in the country.

Eskimo time for all of you soon methinks.
Those fall colors look so great and Autumn is really the most colorful season.

Stay well, be well and blessings to you ❤️

Beautiful. Just beautiful. I miss the fall colors.

We've had and early blast of winter today. High today of 64f (18C) with high winds. I've gone from short pants to long in a hurry :) It's only supposed to be for a couple of days then back to fall.

I hope your fall lingers. Nothing better than a lingering Autumn :)

Isnt the autumn color pallet the most beautiful of the year the intensity of the colors is just so big. Great pictures

Such beautiful colours in your trees @dswigle - so much beauty to lose oneself in!

Thanks for always bringing that smile to my face. What a special soul you are dear Denise.

Colours of life through cycles, totally breathtaking!

Lichen is known to slowly break down rocks, normally only face in one direct on one side of trees depending on North or Southern Hemisphere, another amazing secret of nature we see daily and never really consider.

Gorgeous photography, love the old stone wall, well any stone walls and buildings I find extremely pleasing to the eye.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for sharing your side of life Denise.

Beautiful fall colors Denise. The lichen does look cool and it does not hurt the tree. 💞

Lovely purple flower. My favorite season of the year is Fall. The colors are amazing. Thank you for sharing the trees.

Autumn is just so beautiful and colorful you wish it could stay like that all the time 😁
