Beads of an Autumn Shower

Sharp and crisp
an autumn rain
laying like cold diamonds on old leaves.
Gives me a special sight,
but yet a shiver.
for soon this liquid diamond
shall be a crystal .
 A fluid return shall be far away
and the leaves..gone

Avian Party

These American Robins
enjoyed a drunken feast of Mountain Ash berries
After several frosts these berries began to ferment
and when you have 15 plus Robins full of the juice,
some casualities are bound to happen!
2 dead bouncing off windows,
and the rest with hangovers the next day.
Never drink and fly!

Tricyrtis

Toad Lily
A flower the size of your thumb nail
so intricate with detail and colours.
A native of China it blooms in late fall here.
a small final gem of our garden
