A Sprinkle of Leaves

Fall gives so many picture possibilities.

The earth is covered in a carpet of reds and golds; grasses take on muted hues; and branches become stark lines as they lose their leaves.

On the boardwalk at a local nature park, leaves were faded by the sun and crushed by many feet. Moved about by wind and by walkers, they created this exquisite pattern along the trail.

Petals turned Pink

Not only the leaves change colours in early fall.

Each time I walk out the front door, I am greeted by pretty pink hydrangea. The cooler weather has turned their pale petals to a soft pink.

My mother cuts these and keeps them throughout the winter. I have planted some of my own so that I might do the same.

Although I do not welcome the drop in temperatures, there is beauty to be found in the changing of seasons.
