Owing to a few busy weeks and the overbearing need to rest as well as to catch up on many things, including prep for this blog, I'm taking a week off the regular schedule. And I thought that while I went searching for a little silence and peace, you might like some, too. Rather than go entirely blogless, I'm introducing [mostly] wordless week. I say "mostly" because the chances that I'll say nothing at all are next to nonexistent.
Here's today's offering: a few of the signs of fall around house and garden. The sumac, turning colors...
an unknown flowering shrub, doing likewise:
a fallen rose:
tomatoes, ripening with the aid of window and banana:
...and one of Bellingham's sunsets.
Here's to a restful week for all of us! Normal posting returns next Monday.
