Enjoying Autumn


as the sun began to set last night
a parting in the clouds
and sunlight kissed the top of the mountain


I have been studying our forest mushrooms
and tossed some old ones into my bushes
this young deer found them delightful


the other day I walked among golden giants
 

spied treasures on the forest floor


hiked along a creek
seemed we were in a fairytale
full of lichen, moss and fungi

through an opening in the trees
we saw winter kissing autumn


perhaps one of the tiniest mushrooms i have ever seen
strong enough to hold a raindrop


a week or more ago
autumn snow cloaked our world
for a few hours

now we are back to rain
and 
golden forests galore

  1. The autumn is already imposed and is the sovereign of the fields. It makes them golden to us and dyes of beautiful colors and some persons, can exhibit it to us very well, as you does it.

    Have a good one, Tammie.

    1. hello Tomás,
      Yes, autumn is in full swing here. Some trees are past their colors and some still unfolding in their colorful beauty. The tamaracks seem to be at their height of delight.
      Thank you for your message and visit.

  2. Your fall colours are glorious! I hadn't known until a few years ago that tamaracks do that.

    1. There are so many tamaracks/W.Larch here that it would be hard to miss that they change colors.
      Before I lived here, I had no idea about the cycles of a larch. So I do understand.

  3. I like seeing your fall progressing. That photo of the tiniest mushroom holding a raindrop is unbelievable. Such beauty aroud us. I'm seeing moose every day now. A lot bigger than your mushrooms!

  11. As always your photographs are stunning. You obviously have amazing scenery there, but your ability to compose the pictures and spot the intricate details of nature is very good. You are making me want to return to the USA for another visit!

  16. Dear Tammie - Your autumn has really deepened. You live in such a wonderland all the seasons but especially when there is fog, critter, or mushroom, the scene looks more enchanting. Especially I like the tiny mushrooms holding a rain drop.

  17. WOW. Tammie Lee, your world is sensational. And one of the many things I STILL love about Blogland is that we can see other worlds we'd never see otherwise. Isn't this a fine time of year? Spring and Fall are my favorites since they are the shortest seasons that pack a lot of color and awe, delight and inspiration, and they both lead us into longer seasons of summer steady and winter patience. Thank you dear Tammie Lee for visiting my blog post!

    Happy Sunday!

    Your words,
    your images,
    glide smoothly
    trough my mind
    remain
    in the haze
    of my memory...

    And somewhere
    you touch me
    again and again
    softly…
    cool and brightly ...
    as sea-weed under water ...

  23. I hope this finds you and yours doing well. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

    3. Hi Jerry,
      That friend is me. Your comments do not give an email address to do this sort of correspondence privately, which I do prefer. I thought that you had been spammed and that it was an unsafe link to click on. So I did not want any of my blog friends to click on it.

    4. Okay, I embedded the link in the begging because the search engines had not picked up the site yet. Being able to use the address bar in the new and improved browsers is great until you want to actually type in an address for a site that has not been indexed yet. I will get on displaying your headers as I can--probably sometime tonight because I have not been to bed yet (minor family emergency).
