My World this Week

The road by my house
Each year I am surprised by the differences one day can make in Autumn.  I uploaded the photos this afternoon after driving home from town and the difference between the forest in just a few days is quite remarkable.

These photos were taken over the last week and now a good windstorm is all we need to lose the leaves which are still clinging to the trees!

I was asked about the well water, we had no idea there was bacteria in the well.  It was tested when we moved in nearly nine years ago and none showed up.  Our reason for having such an excellent under the sink filter system is due to living quite near a lot of farms, including a Monsanto test farm (need I say more).  But this well test was required for our mortgage refinance.

So... here is what has been happening in my world this past week!

A few creative people I admire recommended this, I agree... it is exceptional.

What a wonderful world, Brenda!This is a glorious time of year. And we are supposed to have sunshine today and most of the weekend. My sil and grandson Nathan are on a cubscout camp out all weekend, so I am grateful for that!

It is amazing how quickly the trees change. We have had several very windy and rainy days here in Delaware this week and a lot of the leaves are gone. :-(

A very alluring walking trail. I think I can smell the autumn scents of fallen leaves and field flowers gone to seed.

How pretty those flowers still are! Very lovely scenery around your neck of the woods. Will look into that book. Always appreciate your suggestions. Blessings, Bess

I'd love a walk with you there... and Luci Shaw - that has to be worth a look. I enjoy her poetry. Thanks for the suggestion.
