After the rain

The rain stopped before sunset.

The wind died down as well.

The Cardinals are once again coming
to the feeders at sunset.

We choose Orange Pekoe tea
for after supper.

The new teapot cozy worked just fine.

We got a shot of rain tonight. I am so happy. We need more but I will try not to complain now. I am sure all will be pleased with their little sip of water.

You are truly blessed.

Deb said...

I always know where to come to see absolute beauty! Thank you Sherry.

Dear Lisa,
So happy to hear you received some rain. It has been too dry for too long at your house.
We had a wet Spring, Summer and now Autumn. I do love rainy days.
I have watered the pots of mums on the deck a few times but so far no watering in the gardens.

Q said...

Dear Grammy,
Thank you.
I try. LOL
Finding different ways of taking pictures of the rain and the leaves can be challenging.
The telephoto lens has a nice bouquet. I liked the way it saw the leaf in it's sweet spot.

Q said...

Dear Deb,
Thank you.
Thank you too for your encouragement.
I will keep taking pictures. The Autumn light is soft and lovely.

Love your photos. The first one looks magical. It rained all day yesterday here. Now it's turning cold. Probably frost tonite.

Wonderful wonderful wonderful, Sherry!

We had rain and a bit of wind yesterday. The leaves held on. We're hoping they're still around at the end of the month, when we go to SW Mo. I love this time of year.

Cheryl said...

Wonderful Sherry........the colours, your photography, the content........absolutely beautiful.......

Dear Marnie,
I love rainy days. It was cold last night, 38 degrees. Autumn is in full swing.
Anytime now we also could have frost.
I really love the October mornings when the frost is on the ground...

Q said...

Dear Pat,
Thank you.
I love this time of year too. We are going to Westin, Mo. this weekend and I think Arkansas in November. My trees are just starting to turn. You should have a good show of color.
Be safe and have fun,

Q said...

Dear Cheryl,
Thank you very much.
After a while it can become a challange to take pictures that are different...I was pleased with this set.
I am ready for frost and more colors in my leaves...

Wendy said...

That first pic is magical! And the little cardinal so colourful. I love coming here. Thank you for sharing your love of nature.

Q said...

Dear Wendy,
I am so happy you enjoy coming to Corner. I always hope people have a fun time and leave with a bit of peace and happiness. I try to share what Mother Nature is so kind to show me each day.
I struggled today with pictures. I just was not fast enough or the light was off...something.
Was able to get a couple of decent shots while I was walking.
I will try again tomorrow and the next day and the day after

glad you got rain we had it all day.

Rose said...

Sherry, you have such an eye for seeing beauty all around you. We had a welcome rain on Wednesday, too.

I am seeing more bluejays lately than cardinals.

Q said...

Dear Orb,
Miss you,
Love and light,

Dear Marmee,
The second picture is an oak leaf caught in the strings of my wind harp.
The oak leaves are turning brown now and falling. The rain and the wind helped the process along.
The picture of the tea in the tea box was taken with my new macro lens.
We also had a nice couple of rainy, misty days.
October is a grand month,
the Juncos have returned.

Q said...

Dear Rose,
It is all beautiful!!!
I think the Oak leaves are lovely. Such a fine brown...
I also have been seeing lots of Blue Jays. So many in fact that my Mockingbirds are staying away. The Cardinals still come at sunset.
I have peanuts in the shell for the Jays. The squirrels like them too.
I guess I will need to get regular nuts for the squirrels. Give them something to work on.
I so love watching the leaves fall.
I am a romantic.

You are the queen of art.

Marvin said...

A very artistic capture of the fallen leaves. Beautiful!

Q said...

Dear Mary,
It is like you said, "being in the right place and the right time."

Q said...

Dear Mel,
Thank you!
Glad to see you are taking a study break. I shall pop over. I think you are in the middle of Spring time...

Q said...

Dear Marvin,
Thank you.
Hope all of your festivals went well. I have been attending a few in Missouri.
