Melancholy


For me, along with the joy there is a sense of meloncholy in autumn. The weeping maple at the front is making the most of the passage into winter, though not as vibrant as last year.

Reflection:
2 Corinthians 7:10 (New International Version)
Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death.

  3. Lea, for the best colour is needs to be dry and cold. This year we've got the dry (it hasn't rained for weeks) but the weather is unusually warm. Despite the short cold snap last week it has come up warm again.

    Julie, yes the light is wonderful right throughout the day at the moment.

  4. What a great picture for your title. I love the fall, but it always makes me a little melancholy too. Carla

  5. Another pic of delicacy. I guess the leaves falling, the temperature falling, the sun lowering and the shadows lengthening are all signs that the brightness of summer has gone. That's enough to make you melancholy.
