The birds were singing this misty morning on the bayou. It was my eyes that did most of the listening, however. Camellias – draped in the fog – welcomed the new day, affirming that grey days don’t have to be dreary days.


These pretty little gifts from nature reminded me of the reasons why autumn is my favorite season.

I hope all of you are having a lovely autumn.
