THE COLOR GOLD
A cousin to yellow (and orange and brown) is gold. While green may be the color of money (U.S. money, that is) gold is the color of riches and extravagance.
The color gold shares many of the attributes of yellow. It is a warm color that can be both bright and cheerful as well as somber and traditional
While all that glitters is not gold the color gold still suggests grandeur, and perhaps on the downside, the excesses of the rich.
Gold is the traditional gift for a Fiftieth Wedding Anniversary while gold-like bronze is for the eighth and copper with its reddish-gold tones is for the seventh.
Bright gold catches the eye while darker subdued shades of gold lend richness and warmth
These words are synonymous with gold or represent various shades of the color gold.
Goldenrod, yellow gold, honey, bronze, copper
The brilliance of colors you see every fall is directly related to the weather conditions that occur before and during the time the chlorophyll in the leaves is decreasing. When the days of fall are bright and cool, and the nights are chilly but not freezing, the brightest colorations usually develop

GOOD MORNING !
As you know I had a rather mixed up 3 day weekend but I did finally get to the camper and enjoyed the day and a half I did have there. The weather was beautiful. None of my children were there but the friends that camp up the hill from me invited me over to their campfire Saturday evening. As they are higher up their view over the hill is even prettier than the one I have. We watched a beautiful sunset. Note the camper that is in the picture with the car is not mine. It sits behind me. The one I visited is further up the hill.
Everything is still pretty green just a bit of color on the leaves here and there
My niece and her hubby and his folks were also camping and I got to visit with them some too…so it wasn’t like I was there alone. I was thrilled that I got an internet connection. The camp Wi-Fi just isn’t very strong at all up on our hill. The single would come and go at will. But better than nothing.
Well it is back to work and a long 5 day week at that. The next vacation day is the 25th and I’m hoping I get to enjoy that one by having a full 3 days at the camper.
Have a great Monday!
Here is the view in back of where I camp - I used my zoom and you can see the farm down the hill side.
THOUGHT FOR TODAY
Happy we who can bask in this warm September sun, which illumines all creatures, as well when they rest as when they toil, not without a feeling of gratitude; whose life is as blameless, how blameworthy so ever it may be, on the Lord’s Mona-day as on his Suna-day
Henry David Thoreau, 1817-1862
