Golden ratio


it has happened again


 solar geometry has shifted 


its angles re-configured


unleashing golden light 


in equations of alchemy


so golden


as if Midas passed this way.

  1. Hello Belinda:
    How beautifully you have captured the shifting season here in these marvellous photographs and words.

    Whilst recently in the UK we definitely felt the chill of autumn in the evenings and early mornings. On our return to Budapest we are still holding on to summer with warm sunny days and balmy evenings. It seemed too soon to say goodbye to summer so we are pleased to have been given a second chance.

  4. What a lovely post, Belinda. It is not yet fall here, but it will come soon enough. Am getting excited about my cutting garden, tho. So nice to have a fall project this year.

  5. Eek! Autumn's coming! Great photography, really lovely shots.

    And YES I do need to learn to grow my own flowers. I am drinking up the information in your Friday cut flowers posts. I have absolutely no idea where to start in my teensy patch of garden but I do know exactly what I want to do so I'll be extra interested in your blog from now on - I'm guessing I need to get started in autumn.

  9. Lovely!
    You might consider using these images as art cards, they are so pretty.
    I love the hue of blue background with the straw coloured foliage.

  13. Belinda,

    These images are all so beautiful! My daughter loved the reference to Midas...something she learned in her Latin class.

  15. Yes, I agree, the seasons are slowly changing. Summer is unfortunately on its way out, but then autumn has a different kind of beauty as captured by your camera.

  19. Oh my! What fabulous photos. I found your blog through Higgeldy Garden, I have just done a guest post for him, to be published tomorrow. I am so pleased I found you! I am getting to know my new camera and learning how to take a good photo, yours are inspirational.

  20. Dear Belinda,

    Your photographs are stunning. I love your blog... as all garden and flower lovers do, I imagine.

    Here in the Loire Valley autumn has not yet shown the tip of his nose (as the French say). However the trees are heavily laden with fruit.

    Have a beautiful week.
