Colour

Although it is a rather grey day here there's plenty of colour around.

The leaves on the big old maple outside my bedroom window are tinged with red and gold! The sumac outside my office window is on its way from green to orange. And I noticed more than one red tree shouting brazenly from the green woods along my country drive this weekend. Country roads lined with goldenrod and purple asters.

The gold finches were busy pulling seeds out of the pink cone flowers in my garden while I was eating my oatmeal. Both Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal are checking out the bird bath and I see (and hear!) the blue jay has returned to remind us all who's really the boss in this neighbourhood.

The streets this morning are clogged with big yellow buses and on route I saw lots of pairs of bright, white and clean new running shoes along the sidewalks.

I'm imagining those backpacks with their boxes of crayons, pencils, markers and pristine pink erasers. Do they still give out those wonderful fat red pencils to first timers beginning their writing careers? Probably not, alas.

What colour is your day? How do you plan to colour the coming season? What ideas do these colours plant in your imagination?

  1. This is lovely!

    Mine is woody brown. Almost all my neighbours in rural P.E.I. had a delivery yesterday afternoon of their winter's firewood. Most of it is in rough piles of unchopped logs of various lengths, waiting patiently for several weeks' worth of early mornings with an axe.

    (The fancier folks get theirs delivered already cut to length and chopped, if you can believe it. Then, there are the high-falootin' types who get it delivered IN NEAT STACKS.)
