autumn holding on


nearing the threshold of winter
autumn lingers on


the path through the forest was coated in an inch of snow 
wound this way and that to the lake, the frozen lake


reeds now held firm, leaned and stood with grace
reminiscent of masterful zen brush strokes


 we have had frosty mornings
for a couple of weeks


new expressions (for me)
like this spiky rime frost
for sharing the name of this frost!)


the frost grows in the direction that the weather arrives from 
the west
among the gray day
i did find a splash of color

 ~
soon Autumn will turn to winter
it has has a good long season this year

though in some parts of Montana they are in winter already
with deep snow falling a few times

Lovely ending days of autumn to you 
and yours

  3. The picture of the frost on the pinecone is so pretty, Tammie Lee. You're getting lots of frost already. Autumn is lingering on in northern California also, and I just did a post about it today. I would love to visit Montana someday. It's so beautiful. My sister-in-law lived there for many years.

    1. You will have to visit here some day. It is wild and beautiful or wildly beautiful ;-)
      That is a tiny pinecone, a spruce cone, maybe 1.5".

  4. This transition time between fall and winter can sometimes be quite lovely, but this year has been miserable here, early snow, melt, sleet, rain, ice pellets, mush. What can we do though? We have seen it all before and can only hope that we live to see it again!

    1. Yes, living to see it again is wonderful. We have had all those things too, but I like it.

    1. Yes, they are blending, but it seems more like autumn. It is raining good at the moment, more like a California winter (if they are lucky to get rain).

  10. Nobody, nobody, NOBODY does crystals and ice better than you. That pine cone, the ice encrusted grasses... oh, these make me feel like I've walked straight into Narnia! What a wonderful way to start my day!

  13. Wow, such beauty in this shoulder season. It looks pretty wintry to me! I hope that you get snow soon so that we can see your gorgeous photos of it!

  14. And now your place would be enveloped in the winter chill. There was a good long autumn here, too, though the temperature level must be different. I’m chilled with the cold brought by the abrupt change from autumn to winter. The blue landscape of the lake, frozen lake with brush strokes, the pine-cone pierced with crystal needles…. your photos are fantastic as always, Tammie. I'm having a break in blogging till next year. Wish you a merry, peaceful Christmas.
