Misty morning


Summer is coming to a close; it will be officially over on the 21st of this month. Autumn made a short visit last Friday morning reminding us that in a few days it will be here officially. It came in the form of a cool mist hovering below, covering the whole valley, creeping between trees and houses. Mist to me has a feeling of calmness, of tranquility. In the midst of it I could hear only the sound of the birds chirping, the rustling of leaves falling, the cracking of twigs as I step on them, and the soft gentle drop of a dew falling from a leaf.

Fall here in Southern California, is a sampling of the cold weather, intermittently interrupted by warm weather, and sometimes a heat wave; and it ends with a constant cool weather and then winter begins.



Today we were back to our usual summer warm weather. And it was a clear day ...we could see forever. Hmm...just like the song.

Misty or not, you have a nice panoramic view, Mari. The silhouette of those trees and houses against the sky are a treasure!

Enjoy your sunny California weather.

The way you described parang may lungkot na hatid sa akin Mari...parang may bumabalik na childhood scene sa akin. Ang drama ko ano? hehe...

hallo mari,

have a nice autumn begin....

oo nga ano, autumn na, today started....

malamig na dito sa amin, lamig na at wet pa, laging umulan sa amin,
naka tamad lumabas.

pero i like autumn, lalo na kung pupunta kami sa forest or park, na makita ko ang mga leaves ng trees or plants, iba-ibang kulay, magandang tingnan, hindi ba?

autumn is my best season, kahit wet ang daan.....

sigi, regards and have a nice autumn days.

Such a beautiful description of your weather in southern Cali. Fall is definitely here in RI. I just closed the bathroom window as it's really getting cold. I can't wait for the change of the foliage. I've seen some already but soon it's going to be a brilliant display.

Have a great night, Mari!

lady cess,
Malamok pa siguro diyan ngayon. Stagnant water is the breeding place of mosquitoes. Yikes!


nance,
If only I can put that treasure in my pocket and let it grow...to millions of $$$. LOL

ann,
Pareho pala kami ni Josh.

Maganda yang maulan para berde lahat ang paligid. Dito sa amin hindi maulan...we need rain. Enjoy the autumn season.

connie,
We were still in the high 80s today, and my windows were open all the way. That's California weather.

vicki,
Umuulan ngayon dito at malamig pa. Nakakatamad tuloy lumabas, nandito lang ako sa loob ng bahay. Bukas, Linggo, saka na lang kami lalabas ng bahay at mag-shopping.

Salamat sa artwork na bigay mo. Saka ko na kunin siguro pag may panahon.

Thanks.
