Tanka: Douglas Fir and Larch

ah the bliss
when we come to this place
late summer
the chiming of cones falling
stays with us every year

    1. Aww thank you kindly dear Annabelle, Misty has been good as gold and she is the sweetest soul. She has a lovely sense of fun and adventure and sometimes looks at us as if she wonders why she cannot do as much physically as in her younger days. I’m sure this phase with Lyra will pass and you might as well enjoy it – she is only young once! Sending much love and please give sweet Lyra a gentle pat from us all πŸ€—πŸ’—πŸ• xxx

  2. Misty has such a cute face. I could not deny her anything.
    I guess I’m back to see you back from your blogging break, Xenia. I hope you had a wonderful two weeks and enjoyed the end of the summer season. Now onto pinecones, color and the wonderful smells and sounds of autumn.
