Autumn’s Beauty

“Your deepest roots are in nature.  No matter who you are, where you live, or what kind of life you lead, you remain irrevocably linked with the rest of creation.  Charles Cook”

Autumn's Beauty

A perfect cool autumn day for a walk in the forest before snow arrives in the not so distant future.

So much in nature has already let go. Leaves dropped to the ground creating a thick blanket that will enrich the soil as it composts. Fallen branches and trees, still traces of the damage from the Ice Storm of 1998.

Autumn's Beauty

Grey skies. Barely a sound. Stillness. Perfection.

Autumn's Beauty

A spark of colour out of nowhere. A tree it seems I had never noticed, now I see it and will remember. So close to our backyard.

Autumn's Beauty

I am so grateful for these pops of colour at this time of the year. The fruits of a spring-time flowering tree. Such beautiful shades of colours.

Autumn's Beauty

In the thick of the forest, darkness. Slowing down and becoming still.

Autumn's Beauty

A fallen log, covered in moss its protection blanket. It’s insides rotting, changing, fully surrendered to what is happening.

Transformation. Allowing. Trusting. Nature teaching me that this is also part of the life process we go through. So much is learned in nature on how to let go with ease, to allow and simply trust in the process of where it will lead us.

Autumn's Beauty

Fallen, but not dead. Supported by those close by. There’s strength when we are supported. There always seems to be someone to help hold us up when we get knocked down.

Sometimes it might mean that we must look up to connect with the strength that’s always there ready to guide us and see us through the times when we feel we have no strength left or cannot pick ourselves up.

Autumn's Beauty

Perfection. Nature’s beauty.

Autumn's Beauty

A splash of colour remains on a beautiful little oak tree growing on our property. I see oak as a tree that offers us protection in its incredible powerful strength and beauty. I look forward to the next seasons to see this little one grow.

I invite you to come by and check out a few autumn posts from last two years you’ll be glad you did. A feast of colours and one of my adventures. A feast of Canadian fall colours and next is last autumn’s adventure in our backyard forest Time in nature to fill my soul.

  3. Simply beautiful!

  4. Thank you for this post. Very timely for me. The images are beautiful and it calms me just to look and read your description. Down in Texas, things are still holding on for life. Still green with life due to a recent rain and warm up. I cannot wait for the starkness of winter to come. Lots of love!

  5. Lovely photos Suzanne – I felt like I was walking with you. Wishing you a gentle season of transition and many more walks before the snow falls.

  6. Autumn in Canada must truly be a wonder!
    I imagine it to be so much wilder than what we know here.
    Prayers for warmth and comfort to wrap you snug as the snow begins
    to fall and that your heart will be light even when the dark comes early.
    Love and (warm) hugs,
    Jennifer

  7. Thank you for the reminder that there’s beauty and vibrant LIFE even now. I have a hard time truly embracing autumn because I know what’s coming. Mild days always go away too soon for me. ♥
