a season fades

Fall, leaves, fall, die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree
 ~Emily Bronte

Very soon the trees will be stripped bare of leaves 
and the green grass will be seen again. 
Amidst the bleakness of winter peeks out the cheery Pansies,
 always smiling, ready to perk up their heads no
matter how cold our winters may be.
Joining in Judith's Mosaic Monday.


  1. That's a lot of leaves! I love pansies ... such a happy flower!

  2. Pansies do not make it here...I can imagine that they bring a lot of cheer through the long winter.

  3. When the leaves are all gone, it seems stark, but then I admire the architecture of the trees. Pansies are a cheery sight in winter.

  4. Our trees are gray and naked now and the crisp of cold air is here. Your pansies is pretty!


  5. How lucky you are to have cheerful pansies keep you company over winter. The snow on the ground is gone here but little flakes are dancing on the breeze every so often.
    Hope your physio is beneficial, take care.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday Dotsie.

  6. The leaves look beautiful, Dotsie. So do your bright yellow pansies! No more bloomers's been in the teens and twenties for several days and my last bloomers (lamium) have taken a serious hit! We also have a couple of inches of snow on the ground. It looks beautiful. :)

  7. It is quickly fading here. The ebb and flow of the seasons. Time rolling on...
    How lovely to have such cheery color among the grays of winter!

  8. oh I wish we saw flowers in winter and green grass too...usually once the snow starts the green is swallowed by white...

  9. Lovely. Those flowers and green grass will not be happening here any time soon. :-) Have a wonderful Monday!

  10. It is the same here--the contrast. I brought in several pots of annuals last week before our forecasted freeze and am enjoying their beauty indoors!

  11. Love the poem, love the photos...I just LOVE fall! So sad when it goes away :(

  12. Oh, pansies are cheerful little flowers for sure. I have had them in window boxes in the past and was surprised they survived some pretty cold temps.

  13. It has mostly gone from here too. I'm thankful it was lovely this year. The cold has come with a fierceness, it is sooo cold.

    Thankful to have lots of puttering in the house to do.

    Thank you for sharing that poem. I had heard it years ago, and had forgotten it. I like it a lot, especially the line "Every leaf speaks bliss to me."


  14. Most leaves have fallen here, and we had our first significant snow last week! Thankfully this week has warmed up a little into the 40's and we might reach the 50's this weekend. Now that feels warm!

    Hope you are feeling well and doing well in PT!

  15. Oh I almost forgot about Pansies, and your lovely image reminds me, I must go and get a few this weekend~


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
