Tis the season

The frost on the ground that stubbornly wouldn’t melt in the weak sun was enough reason to assume winter had arrived.

Warm smiles and “I love you”s melted the frost in my heart as I started the day. It’s going to be a grand week, don’t you think?

Daylight savings time saves what exactly?

Not my photo

Clicking on a link where I found a link to another link and so it goes…

Those who know me well know I have huge issues with daylight saving time. Yes, it is nice to have longer evenings, but it’s so unnatural! My personal gripe stems from not having the sun where I expect it to be at noon. It takes me ages to adjust.

Why did it then come as such a surprise when I found an article on wildlife deaths due to daylight savings time?

http://goo.gl/PExcu – This link goes to the translated version of a Danish site

In short, animals that usually use the quieter hours of the morning to cross busy roads suddenly find themselves in peak traffic. As a result, many are killed, at least, until they, like me, finally adjust their own ‘clocks’ to our manipulation.

Can someone tell me why we really Need DST??

The quiet inbetween

I’m often asked, now that the tourist season is pretty much over, what it’s like during the week. We have one more weekend to open to the public, then the only public will be here during special events and pre-arranged tours.

I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy the absolute peace. It’s tangible!

Good morning, Autumn!

mist

A quilt of mist

covers frosty grass

as a blue sky blazes

overhead

I walk beneath

a fiery green bough

on paths of gold

and red

Diamond dew

sparkles on leaves

draped low

over the beds
