A Fall Hike In the Sonoran Desert — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Fields of gold
more beautiful
than any mineral

Strike it rich
it’s out there
to be found

There’s more
I know, just
keep on hiking

Over the hills
through meadows
of golden magic

you’re shifting gears in life.

You should leave your era,

it should never leave you.

the darkness in ourselves
that we miss the depths
of the loveliness, beauty,
brilliance, creativity, and joy
that lie at our core.”

Picture window
Fall sunset

Darkness settles
Lights shine inside

Window reflects 
Sunset is gone

Day becomes night
Mirror window

Went looking for faith on the forest floor,
and it showed up everywhere.
In the sun, and the water,
and the falling leaves,
the falling leaves of time.

Early Morning Light Highlights Fall on Mt. Lemmon   3 comments

WILDFLOWER ART-2-blogEarly Morning Light on Mt. Lemmon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Beneath a yellow fading tree,
As red suns light thee, Autumn-morn,
In wildest rapture let me see
The sweets that most thy charms adorn.

O while my eye the landscape views,
What countless beauties are display’d;
What varied tints of nameless hues, —
Shades endless melting into shade.

— from “Autumn” by John Clare

It’s been a warm and dry fall on Mt. Lemmon, which could be a sign of little moisture and low temperatures the winter for Sky Valley.

First Camellia Bonsai Blossom   1 comment

One year ago October, our friends Kathy and Bob from Winchester, Virginia visited us. They gave us our first camellia bonsai tree. Since then I have been careful to make sure it was watered regularly here in the desert southwest. Although it is typically a late fall blooming plant, the little tree didn’t have any blossoms when we receive it. So, we have been anxiously waiting for it to bloom this fall, wondering if the buds were ever going to open. This image is the first blossom. 

Thanks again, Kathy and Bob for the lovely bonsai.
