A Late Summer Walk

I took a morning walk around the Mount the other day. What I saw reminded me why, when you ask people to name their favorite season, so many of them answer: autumn. Here's a peek at some late summer, early autumn scenes in our part of the world.

In the memory garden.

Cosmos: Back of the house by the greenhouse.

View from the first hermitage.

One of many crab apple trees in the front yard.

"Vocatue atque non vocatus, Deus aderit."

A birch tree right on the edge of the woods.

One of many trees and bushes that have exploded with berries!

As the Buddhists say, "After Ecstasy the Laundry!" And our renovations continue on.
