Just some pretty pictures....
Not much to post about tonight, but despite the showery weather and cloudy skies here are some nice pictures of the sky, the garden, the hills...and some gorgeous Nectarines that Sid, our #3 son, brought up the hill for us to enjoy. We had some at dinner and they were yummy......I am thinking pie! As I pass by them on my way to the kitchen the peachy fragrance is beautiful and mouth watering!
The sky tonight was quite interesting - talking to us about showery weather tomorrow, probably.
Not nearly as spectacular as the two lovely rainbows that have sprung from dark skies to show us where the pot of gold lies on the Cawston Bench.
Wednesday evening's rainbow, which I have already posted to my new blog 'Similkameen Skies' (see sidebar)
And another vivid shaft on Sunday evening.
Sunday morning at breakfast we spotted what we first thought were mountain goats on the toe of K mountain, but with the spy glass turned out to be three large bouquets of helium balloons tied with scarlet ribbon, escaped from some gay celebration and floating to and fro amongst the rocks and trees and meadow. Unfortunately I was not successful in getting a clear picture, but here is where they were frolicking....
The little white blobs are really the balloons. We left them partying and went to church.
By the time we got home none of them were as exuberant as they had been,
and they wafted lower and lower, some of them eventually
ending up entwined around the power lines.
I am sure they did have a story to tell.
In the garden a few summer flowers mix with the asters and yellow daisies.
but the peony leaves are showing their fall colours along with the scarlet maple.
Welcome to Autumn.
