After the rain, we can tiptoe together on a crimson carpet, through leaves of ruby-red on russet. Our garden hosts seven Japanese Maples; whose leaves fill every corner when November comes.
I find the colours breathtaking, and I enjoy sharing them. From flaming Acer leaves, to a golden butterfly perched on a ginkgo branch, and a violet hydrangea, whose petals turn blue when cold. These were all taken over the last three weeks. Please enjoy.
Indescribably wonderful is the gift of sight, and now is a very fine moment in which to give thanks for that gift, and to send much love to those who are forced to live without it.
May the light of love for this good earth shine forth brightly from the eyes of one and all, from this moment forwards, and then on forevermore.
Peace from Amras.

Greetings from a place of good expectations, where we cheerily anticipate the coming warm weather. Amanda took these pics during her most recent visit to our sons home in Weybridge, which is close to London. And what a beautiful day that was for April. The little white flowers, and butterfly, were taken in our garden, but they begged to be included. I hope you agree.
Because I lack sufficient stamina to continue writing, I will rest for now, but not before saying thank you to all of our readers and followers, with our gratitude for the support you bring to this, our peace-loving blog.
And with that, it’s Peace again, and out from me

Hello readers, I hope you find yourselves in good spirits. This will be a quickie, as I have been finding it a little difficult to attend to many things of late. What a year it has been so far, in February we encountered bumblebees, ladybirds, mosquitos, and a little sunburn. How things are changing. If the last few years are anything to go by, July and August will be downright cold. My mother used to say that one day the seasons will swap places, and it seems that she was right.
These photos are proof that in the Northern hemisphere spring has well and truly arrived. It’s saffron season now, and as we March into April, colour is breaking out all over the place. A happy note indeed.
With that I shall take my leave of you once again. With my thanks to all readers for dropping by. If I haven’t caught up with your latest blogs yet, please bear with me, for I will pay you a visit as soon as I can.
Peace and Namaste from Amras.
You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins….you may see the world around you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honor trampled in the sewer of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then–to learn! Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and dream of regretting. Learning is the thing for you……….”

Despite many challenges, both physical, and technical, I’m back.
Although October is starting to get chilly, I have managed to spend a little high quality time in the garden. What impresses me most about being outdoors so far is how warm it still feels compared to July.
What a disappointing month that was for landlocked Brits.
The pics, taken in a day, show glimpses of the season in motion, I hope you enjoy viewing them.
As always I want to thank all readers, and followers who drop by these pages. I sincerely hope that they are worth your time. I am sorry that I can’t always reply to comments promptly, but I can’t thank you, dear readers, enough for the compassion, and wisdom contained in your comments.
I’m just about done for now, so until next time, peace, and Namaste from Amras.
