The last November Rose

I'm honestly grateful we've been blessed with a few more days of good weather, this long peaceful autumn is an equinoctial bliss considering the fact that we haven't managed to fix our heating system.

We've had some chilly nights, but fortunately they weren't chilly enough to freeze our butts. So, in the meantime,  we bake bran bread, play with our cats and ... we keep each other warm :). I discovered yesterday one last red rose, blooming solitary and brave in the middle of my desolate garden. In a few days we'll probably experience the first rime, so we voluptuously enjoy every second of these last sunny days.

Enjoy this last bit of light. I must say being cosy with your honey sounds wonderful!!! I can see that the new cat is still hanging around!!! I love the photos, so bright and clear, almost like I can touch them. :)

We don't have autumn here but it's now the monsoon season which means lots of rain and my days are spent playing with my furkids. :)

In my part of the world (Texas) it's bizarrely warm right now. Usually by mid-October, it's getting chilly, but we still have green leaves on our trees! Still waiting for the first hard freeze to make all the leaves turn. I even had a mosquito bite me last night, so the bugs are still out. It definitely doesn't feel like the usual November here!

The buttons blossomed!

Your pictures are so voluptuous. You make everything look good! We raked up our last leaves this week. Our Norwegian maple lost its last golden leaf. That's better than trying to gather dead leaves in the snow, but the poor tree looks sort of bare. Makes me think of the old story about the boy whose girlfriend is sick, and he ties the leaves on the tree because she said she'd leave him when the last leaf fell. I haven't thought of that for a long time. I think it was a song.

The lone rose is beautiful Petronela... also, those berries look delicious, yummy

Raspberries, roses, baking and cats. Life doesn't get much better than that. Thank you - and did you notice my first two sentences very nearly rhymed?

YONKS said...

I hope you start stocking your cupboards now Petronella. Remember the winter you had last year. Only seems like yesterday. Stay warm both!

Beautiful Pic! Yes the warmth has hung on in Central Texas, too, though we did get a frost last weekend. It`s been in the 80s most of the week and the gardens look great. It`s a true Indian Summer, soon to end.

I love the way you're describing the end of a season. I have the same feeling and experiences at the beginning and end of every season. When me and the children went out yesterday in the early evening I enjoyed the crisp breeze. We didn't need to be bundled with scarves and gloves, etc., but the fresh crispness and the sounds of the wind in the leaves of the trees is a marked change from our sunny South!

Your artwork and photos are gorgeous in every post! Just fabulous.

Dear, about your last comment, i answer: I am thinking about how to help my friends to understand my written in next future. In the past, I had translated and published also in english, maybe I do again.

Hugs
