I don't have any beautiful fall color to share with you, but today was a gorgeous day. There's nothing like the blue of an October sky.

My maples have been suffering the past three years. They have a lot of dead in them now. At first I thought it was the drought, but with plenty of rain this year, they are still struggling. If I were wealthy, I'd do all in my power to save them. But as it is, I will just have to see what develops.

Look at that sky. There was no sun in the house anymore, so I took my camera outside to capture sunny leaves and sunny skies. The tree below is a neighbor's. I don't know what kind it is, but it turns a lovely yellow, which the photo didn't bring out very well.

We do have some pretty color around town, just not in my yard! After a hard day, it did me good to go look at the pretty sky and sun on the trees, even if just for a few moments.
When we have a trial or a burden, we must remember: This too will pass. I'm counting on it!
Sorrow looks back. Worry looks around. Faith looks up.
(from my kitty perpetual calendar)
A few years ago my neighbor had an easily-spotted Baltimore Oriole nest in her tree. But she hadn't seen it because quite frankly, she spent most of her time looking back, down, and around, fretting about what should have been done, what still needed doing, and what others were doing.
Let's not forget to look up. It's beautiful up there.
Look up at the heavens and see;
gaze at the clouds so high above you.
Thanks to all of you who write such wonderful blog posts and/or comments that make life that much sweeter.
Blessings to All,
