blooming leaves

this is my brightest bloom in the garden.

the shades of orange, red, yellow, green, brown are so beautiful to behold.

it is a symphony of colours and i can't stop staring at her loveliness.

Be an opener of doors for such as come after thee.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson -

live in this moment, it is beautiful enough to be memorable.

Don't ya just love the colors of this new season?

I think Maples are one of my favorite trees for beautiful fall color! The ones around here have been turning as well. I also like the redness of the Bradford Pear when it turns.

That is gorgeous. Not all maples have so many bright colors. Most of mine turn a gold with no red or orange. I like yours better.

Yes, A beautiful tree. I also love the different colors on the same tree. Think how it will look when it gets really big.

i know lola, many of our trees are this small but we have a line of mature trees that i am sure have been on this land for quite some time. the varied colours on this one tree is a real treat.

Dear Marmee,
This tree is lovely in her autumn dress.
I have watched many of my trees mature and have enjoyed them in every age. My front Sugar Maple turns many shades of red. My husband and I make bets on when it will be at peak. Our leaf peeking outing is often in our own front yard.
Autumn is lovely.

watching the leaves turn still gets me excited everytime. i grew up in florida and was not prive' to seasons until moving here. what a powerful reminder of joy, autumn is. thank you!

marmee said...

meems i am trying to take it all in. the day after i took these photos most of the leaves dropped off. i thought posting it was overkill but i couldn't stop staring at it. i am so glad i did.
every moment is precious we just have to remind ourselves of that sometimes. btw, it is sooooo hot here today!
