Amazing Autumn

As of the 21st of September it’s officially autumn. I want to celebrate the beginning of this colourful season in words & pictures ☺
Here two favourite poems:

SeptembermorgenEduard Mörike

Im Nebel ruhet noch die Welt,
Noch träumen Wald und Wiesen:
Bald siehst du, wenn der Schleier fällt,
Den blauen Himmel unverstellt,
Herbstkräftig die gedämpfte Welt
In warmem Golde fließen.

Nothing Gold Can StayRobert Frost

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

To catch the golden light of autumn is a challenge. Sometimes I succeed…

Light haze down in the valley, bright light up here…


Surrounded by gold as I walk along my garden path


Autumn frame for the majestic mountains, seen from Arolla


The Colminers’ Path is best in autumn
