A Harmony in Autumn

Summer is over. Autumn is on the threshold. It's great but at the same time sad as warm summer days went by and now is the time to prepare for cold winter and miss about summer. But in spite of this sadness I like autumn because of very beautiful nature with its bright and sunny colors. Great poets always glorify autumn as one of the most wonderful seasons.

There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky, which through the summer is not heard or seen, as if it could not be, as if it had not been! ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley

I trust in nature for the stable laws of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant and autumn garner to the end of time. ~ Robert Browning

Autumn wins you best by this its mute appeal to sympathy for its decay.
~ Robert Browning

Good Credit - Lowest Interest Rates

What is the first feature you pay attention to when applying for a new credit card? I believe it is credit card rates and then fees. The lower they are the better. But unfortunately, not all cards come with attractive features. Only people with good or excellent credit history can afford such perfect cards with low rates, no annual fee and other striking advantages. As for those with not ideal credit history, they can use credit cards either with low rates and high annual fee or high interest rates and fees. Why is it so? Banks and credit card companies always risk working with people whose credit is damaged or not ideal. So they need to take special security measures – rather high interest rates and low credit limit. But at the same time such lenders offer a good chance to rebuild credit history and aspire to better financial opportunities.

Mimosa Pudica

Recently I decided to experiment. I bought a seed of mimosa pudica in order to grow it at home. I have never done it before (Lol), never grown any plant from a seed myself at home. So, I expected good results and I got them. Hurray!!!
It is beautiful and very ticklish when I touch its leaves they droop reopening within several minutes. Not for nothing it is called Shy . My daughter likes this flower as a favorite toy because of its effect: droops, re-opens, droops, re-opens...

Always Thrilling Olympic Games

Do you watch Olympic Games? I enjoy watching this strong competition but prefer only friendly kinds of sport. I mean I don't like boxing or weightlifting or anything like that as I simply don't understand them as a kind of sport and don't enjoy seeing how people hurt each other or overstrain him/herself. But still Olympic Games are always thrilling and interesting especially if our sportsmen win. I wish them good luck!
