Wordless Wednesday.


Autumn creeps closer 🍂

  1. Very lovely! Be thankful you can see the sky. Once again we're under a smoke health warning again and it's horrible. It's sunny but you can't see it at all except occasionally as an orange ring in the smoggy sky. It looks like Armageddon. So nice to see a photo of a normal day! :-)

    1. Yes, it's all very normal here at present thank goodness. Not a fun summer, but we certainly got off lightly. All of this destruction - I kid you not, I actually dreamt about the four horsemen of the apocalypse last night! They were riding over the forest in the sky. It's really no wonder I dreamed that given the current state of affairs...

  2. it's gotten a little better here in Oregon; we live near the Columbia and couldn't go outside for the last couple of days: it looked a permanent eclipse because of the smoke from the fires in the gorge... and everywhere else, it seems... the northwest is about burning to the ground... well, exaggeration, but it is the worst i've seen in forty years...
    i couldn't get the rest of the pictures when i pressed the "read more" button; but the tree was nice...

    1. In B.C., they say in the last 70 years, 4 of the worst years for forest fires have been in the last five years. Crazy! I still say they should have heavy, heavy fines for people who start them. On the island where I vacation they are so careful because one fire could burn it to the ground (it almost happened one year) but I continually see tourists who are careless. However I believe this year an unusual number of them were started by lightning.

      Glad your air is a little better. Here it's still awful but we're supposed to get rain in the next few days so hopefully that will clear most of it away.

    2. Oh dear, it sounds so dreadful in the Americas right now... Glad you're all safe.

      And Cleo, yes, fines, and also a special place in hell for those who start them deliberately. Our forest here has a lot of avenues, the idea behind that is a fire couldn't spread very quickly. Wouldn't like to test it, though.

    3. I didn't know that you had any forests left after the Romans --- Ha ha! Okay, bad joke. I apologize! ;-)

    4. O: if a fire gets really going, it can jump long distances... in the Columbia gorge, it jumped across the river to Washington state, a distance of several miles... very scary...

    5. Good Lord, that is very scary... :S

      And Cleo, yes despite the best efforts of some we do indeed have one or two forests ;)
