Two beautiful photos and haiku. Love that "reminders dangle" --it makes me think of all the things I have hanging over my head that need done!

I was all set to tell you that there were no poems, and then I spied with my little eye, some words on the beautiful pictures. Well done. :)

I love the pictures of the ice and the leaf....

Is that you doing the pushups at the bottom?

I wish we would get some of that snow. We havent got any yet! lots of rain...no snow. I think I need to do a snow dance.

Love the "dangling reminders!"
I'm always amazed at those last leaves that hang on for dear life.

And yes, snow (or ice at least!) is on it way :)

I love the photos and the Haikus. You've really outdone yourself today.

We got snow last night and still more today. It's awesome.

Lovely photographs and haiku - the ice photo is especially good and the advice in the haiku on the leaves is excellent. 'Do it now' is one of the things I constantly tell myself but this haiku is a much more elegant way of saying it.

Rel, thank you so much for your comment on my latest post. I laughed and laughed - it just made my day.

And yep, I'm all for meeting you and Lee for coffee and a croissant in the south of France, Tuscany, or anyway, actually!

Take care and watch the push-ups! You don't want to do yourself a mischief!! Hehe
