  1. The sumac goes the most magnificent red. I can’t wait until the color kicks into high gear here. Hope you’re having a lovely day, Geraldine.

  2. Love the photo and the haiku. It is time to stop and marvel at all the beauty of autumn.

  3. They’re on fire… Magnificent photo! And such a fitting haiku… Yes, stop and marvel… we should do that more often…

  4. Beautiful photo paired with a fine haiku. Thanks for dropping by my blog.

  5. Such gorgeous colors, fall is lovely, and you have captured it beautifully.

    Do you know why the comment link is above the post? I read a few bloggers who post super long posts, and then after reading it, I have to scroll all the way up to the top? Not that you do this, I’m just venting…it’s those who post such long posts, you think they would move the link to the bottom. I get so frustrated by having to do that, it almost makes me want to just click away, and not leave a comment. Is it a choice, or does WP make it that way…


  6. Hi Kim, I was right this time woohoo…it is a sumac! 😉

    Hi Joe, It really is. I can’t wait to get out there and take some pics. Although the colors need to “develop” a bit more this year. I’m glad I’ve got some color-filled file photos like this one, in the meantime. 😉

    Hi Cora, Yes, we certainly should. There are marvels to enjoy, everywhere. Often overlooked in the rush of days it seems. 😦

    Hi Mary, Thanks for stopping in here too Mary and thanks for the follow. I enjoyed your blog. 🙂

    Hi Jen, Thanks Jen. That’s weird about the comment link. I’m typing this in the comment box and it’s below the post. Not sure why that’s happening for you. I visit a LOT of WP blogs and I don’t think I’ve noted that anywhere, at least not recently. Sorry about that.

    Happy Thursday, G

  7. LOVE the love the color in this shot, Geraldine!

    And the haiku as well…..”Stop, marvel.” You said it! “)
