Morning Mist and More


My morning walk was so peaceful and lovely with the sun shining through the mist. I had not brought my camera and anyway, I find it hard to capture the beauty of what I see so these pics are from the internet.


                      The mist rising over the lake.


I keep forgetting whether what I have is Boston Ivy or Virginia Creeper. Both turn a gorgeous colour in Autumn. I looked it up and what covers the arbour is Virginia Creeper.  No doubt by next Fall I'll have forgotten and will have to look it up again.



When I go walking I find the fallen leaves irresistible and end up bringing home yet more to press in any heavy book. Aren't these amazing?


Lastly I wanted to show what I recently bought at a thrift store for four dollars. This handy whatever it may be called will certainly help me get up when I'm gardening.  It is very sturdy and well made but I think my knees will need more padding.


                   It can also be turned upside down and serve as a seat.


Thanks for visiting today.

  1. Those leaves are so pretty! Have you identified them all? I have the exact same seat/kneeling pad, from a garage sale. It's had more use as something to set the sprinkler on in the middle of the garden. I think Henny has one just like it too!

  2. I love your "whatever it may be called"! I need one of those for my gardening! And I love the Virginia Creeper too. I wrote it down so I can look for some to plant next spring. Have a great weekend!

  3. I have Virginia Creeper too but yours is just beautiful! Mine tend to grow up the sides of trees. Good buy on the bench, you will need knee pads:)

  4. Thanks for letting me know what the vine is. Very pretty! The leaves are so gorgeous this year. I have to restrain myself from bringing home too many!
    What a great find at the thrift store. I am sure you will get a lot of use out of it.
    Have a good weekend.
