Last week started off so well, or so I thought! Monday I went to my drawing class and then later in the day to my watercolor class. I love both courses. The drawing is taught at a local community center and the watercolor class is […]

Zunday Zen … Dazzling Dew Drops
Under gloomy skies summer’s fragrant last blossoms dazzle in first fall rain.
Zunday Zen … Pendulousness
Dangling by a thread in between heaven and earth one leaf’s final dance. One afternoon late last fall in the garden I noticed this maple leaf hanging from a spider’s thread. A light breeze kept the leaf dancing in circles until a strong gust of wind […]
Zunday Zen … Breathtaking Autumn Farewell
Nature, dressed in layers, layers of colors, layers of texture, layers of light. Nature quietly changing, quietly returning quietly returning to the earth. Nature getting ready, ready to rest ’til awakened in spring. These photos were taken about 10 days ago at the Oregon Garden […]
Zunday Zen … Reflections
Flamboyant, yet peaceful. In-your-face colors. Brilliant reds, golden yellows. Glorious autumn sunshine. Twirling in midair leaves swirling, floating, landing softly down below in the dark waters.

The last two mornings had a definite chill in the air. Fall is arriving! There’s even rain in the forecast. Much of my garden looks heat stressed, despite watering. This summer’s been extremely hot and dry for this area. Rain will be good, especially for […]
Zunday Zen … Meditation on Main Street
A peaceful meditation seat with toadstools and pillowy moss. Steal this wink of time, I think … To miss it would be a great loss. .
Zunday Zen … The Beauty of Autumn
Vibrant leaves crunching underfoot. Summer now all but a memory. This was one of my very favorite walks for the entire year! The breeze, the sun, the autumn leaves showing off their most dazzling array of color, the clear blue sky and the peaceful quiet […]
Zunday Zen … Autumn Magic
Feathery tassels of grass quivering, rustling, in the gentle autumn breeze.
There is a nip in the air, the leaves are starting to turn and even the flowers are beginning to look like autumn. Where did summer go? Have a wondrous first weekend of fall!
