Although we are officially into the Autumn there are no real indications of it here on the Farmlet. The weather has been in the mid to high 90’s all week and all of my world, both inside and out, is covered in a layer of dust. The weather man forecasts a low with a cooling trend and rain for us this weekend and into next week. I wait for its refreshing.
But for today I share with you a magical day when Autumn was truly spectacular.
Looking for Dryads
Home for the day Lynda watched the trees looking for Dryads.
Lynda waited patiently watching a most likely grove. Listening carefully she thought she heard laughter on the breeze…
She listened a long time. Hiding, waiting, until finally her patience was rewarded. The Dryad came spinning out of the trees in full, fall garb, and Lynda caught her on camera! Isn’t she lovely?

What is a Dryad????
Click on the word Dryad under the first picture and it will take you to a site that tells all about her and her kind. 😀
HINT: She is from Greek Mythology
She is beautiful! And so is her home. What a wonderful, magical array of colours, beautifully photographed.
Thanks Cindy. I took these using my zoom lens I got a little camera shake on the last picture. But of all the pictures I have taken around my home I think this set and the one on this page: http://mycameraseye.wordpress.com/2009/08/20/afternoon/
are probably my favorites. Both were taken from the front room window of my home!
