Mardi Gras Costume

Mardi Gras  costume and mask over face,

Twirling of ribbons and finding of place,

Stepping in time to the autumnal beat,

 Outlandish fall foliage parades down the street.

      The colours were so astonishing on that shrub, just for a day or two, that I couldn’t resist. (Not that I know very much about Mardi Gras… ) 🙂

        I was gonna ask you ’bout that! I didn’t think Canada had Mardi Gras, but you never know…there’s probably something closely akin to it. People everywhere love to party!!

        Especially that Caddo Veil character…

      • Caddo Veil says:

        Well, true–must be my half-Cajun side (Mardi Gras in my blood, cher!)

      • melodylowes says:

        Nice! 🙂

      • Caddo Veil says:

        PS–Melody are you familiar with Maria Rose Thomas Tatham? Her blog is Christian Fantasy for Women, I think–anyhow, she has a poem (“Autumn 3”–I think) that you’d love–it reads like an amalgam of what you and I would write!

      • melodylowes says:

        I AM familiar with Maria – I’ll look it up!!

    This was fun and bright! That bush was decked out . ..so glad you got to capture it. God bless you!

    • melodylowes says:

      Thank you Debbie – it was so unusual. Just for a day or two, and then the frost turned it all brown – but it was enough to be caught on camera!
