Yesterday, I turned the calendar to a brand new page, then went for a walk to see October. Here in my part of the world, wildflowers are fading and trees have begun their magic transition from green to the spectacular shades of yellow, orange and red that can only be found in Autumn. I wish October, and all of the “Wow” it brings, lasted for more than 31 days!

These photos show the Great Fountain Geyser in Yellowstone National Park during successive stages of eruption. The geyser puts on a truly dazzling display of nature’s power when it erupts, sometimes reaching heights of 200 feet in the air. It is located in the Firehole Lake area of Lower Geyser Basin.

All on the same Peach Drift groundcover knockout rose bush, these gorgeous flowers are in various stages of opening. The buds are a lovely shade of peach, the full blooms are a combination of soft pink petals with yellow centers, and the nearly spent blossoms are almost white. I think they present an impressive display of delicate beauty!

Spring is not behaving as it should! It obviously knows nothing of social distancing, for it smothers me with closeness every time I step outdoors. I for one am glad… the change of seasons brings a bit of normalcy to this mad, mad world in which we live!

Red is an emotional color. It means love, hate and many things in-between. It awakens passion, excitement and our will to survive. It is energizing! Red can also make an old stone structure come to life when used as an accent color on a door or a window. It encourages the passer-by to take notice and bids them to come inside… so we did!

There is a magic to the landscape of Scotland. The shadows seem to snuggle in the hills, the sun knows just where to shine, and colors tend to find their most unique shade of perfection. Like Walt Whitman said ~ “I swear to you, there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell”. To me, Scotland is one of those divine things – indescribable!

Cold and brown is the current situation where I live.
I’d welcome lush and green right about now!
