a blessed week

i'm writing this post tucked into a comfy bed
with a very dear friend [canine] sleeping at my feet
while outside
my beloved maples are gently drifting leaf stars

it's been a wonderful week for quiet walking in the woods
time with good friends
and for doing some very satisfying work




maple stars...


the lovely patina on railside treasures


i'll be wearing the dress [that big thing on the right]
when i say goodbye to this very special place


and head for Canada and Halifax this afternoon

  17. Welcome to Canada. Halifax is my favourite Canadian city-- soak as much in as you can while there. Check out Frog Pond, Polly Cove, and other rocky outskirts too. There are wild cranberries at Prospect (but let's keep that our secret). Enjoy!
