AUTUMN SKIES

We are well into Autumn now in the Southern Hemisphere and the season is cool, gray and rainy in Melbourne. It is good to see the rain coming down, as memories of the serious droughts and bushfires several years back are still fresh.

The nights lengthening,
Cool, gray days with blessed rain
And silvery sun...

This post is part of Sylvia's Skywatch Friday meme,
and also for the Floral Friday Fotos meme.

  2. Rain and clouds. For a while there it felt like we may never see them again.
