My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Festival of Flowers: Oh So Orange! :<)



Woo hooo…my favorite season is just around the corner.  🙂

Cooler temps. and all those beautiful: orange, gold and red shades to come.

How I ♥ autumn!

I was tidying up my photo files this past week; deleted almost 300 photos and sorted the other 1000 +  back into nice neat files.

♥ it.  It gave me such a lift; I’m an organized kind of person. LOL

Another perk, I found some photos that I had forgotten about, including this stunning marigold.


Also sharing at this week’s upcoming: Festival of Flowers. Starts Friday.

Come join us and share some of your own floral photos!

  1. It’s nice to get things organized, Geraldine. 🙂 What a gorgeous macro. The color is stunning! It’s already feeling like autumn here…though I hope this cold snap is transitory. Too soon, yet, for the real chill though autumn is my favorite season. 🙂

  2. gorgeous Marigold……

  3. “My favorite season is just around the corner.”

    Me too, Geraldine! I LOVE autumn!!!! That crisp, clean and wonderful scent in the air. I was born in the fall (October) so maybe that’s why.
