Pink-magenta orchid-closeup picture

This is how my pink-magenta orchid looked like when I bought it.
These flowers are gone now but a new stalk is emerging. The blooms should open sometimes around Christmas but I doubt that they'll be as pretty as the first flowers.

Autumn silence-peaceful rusty fields

Though it's chill in the air, the autumn sun is still quite warm for mid November.
Watching the deep blue sky contrasting the silent, rusty fields and gently swirling, golden leaves feels me with peace.

"There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been!"
~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
