Today's gifts

First frost of the year. My Beloved brought me a frosted autumn leaf, "quick,look before it melts!". Some gifts last only seconds but are no less special for that.
Butterflies still, a Red Admiral and a Comma, wings outstretched and quivering to catch the last of the sun.
The pinks and oranges of a spindle tree against a blue sky.
Deer prints in the mud.
A kingfisher landing a few short feet away.
Finding new places to wander and wonder - an imaginatively planted woodland with cherry and spindle and sweet chestnut, willow and walnut, maple and oak.
The nearly full moon rising in a lavender sky in the east, the sun setting in a fiery western sky.
