This time of year we are no longer seeing

this scene in the morning…

…and our water bill has reduced accordingly

A slow shutter and some editing captured

the sun’s rays in the spray just nicely.

Our Mock Orange in bloom

Taken  in late April four or five years ago,

we still have one or two green oranges on our tree.


It may be just my eyes

but I believe there is a tinge

of orange in this daisy.



Also some orange in the sunrise.

Finally, pumpkin seeds.

Around the garden leaves are showing

signs of decay as our dry autumn continues

and days grow colder.

About fifteen minutes prior to sunrise last Friday

I captured this colour.


As sunrise drew nearer the sky colour decayed

into a rather drab effort for a sunrise.
