Colour in the Hedgerow

Just a photo of the hedgerow by our shed...

AUTUMN - Carrie Gault

If the day and night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal, - that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself. The greatest gains and values are farthest from being appreciated. We easily come to doubt they exist. We soon forget them. They are the highest reality… The true harvest of my daily life is something as intangible and indescribable as the tints of morning or evening. It is a little star-burst caught, a segment of the rainbow which I have clutched.

Henry David Thoreau
Walden, or Life in the Woods


  1. Lovely fall colors in that photo. Perfect choice of quote to accompany it :)

  2. We were up in the Yorkshire dales today and there are some beautiful autumnal scene. hope my photos have come out OK. I only took 136 - I'm slipping!

  3. Good words and a lovely picture. Flighty xx

  4. Gorgeous colors of Autumn... and such a beautiful quote!

  5. I haven't visit Ireland although I hope to one day, but I remember the hedgerows in England. Mixed with all kinds of different trees and shrubs....must be as beautiful in fall as they were in spring.

  6. It is so nice to see you posting again, even though I'm going backwards.

    I do love the picture and these words from Thoreau, "All nature is your congratulation..."

    This is exactly how I feel when I take my walks or just on my porch and watch life in action:~)
