Bloomin’ Update 48: The Falling Leaves . . .


Autumn Leaves

In the last post, I left the garden for a music-themed writing prompt from WordPress.  This week, it’s back outside — or rather, it’s back to the photos that I originally had taken if I hadn’t come across that writing prompt.  And it’s a good thing I snapped these photos when I did — because a week of wind later, where once there were leaf-laden trees, there now stands bare branches.

While the leaves may have fallen, though, there will always be music.  Please, have a listen and stroll though the colors of autumn.

Something seems a little out of place in the autumn leaves.  Can you spot it?

Here's a close-up.  As much as I love the color, it seems a little out of place in the autumn palette.

  1. Beautiful! I love the fall leaves. This year, since I now live in New England, I am just thrilled with all the vibrant colors that just light up the trees. I can never pick a favorite fall color. Orangey-reds? Bright yellows? I just love them all!

    • How exciting for you to experience a New England fall. I’m sure by now, though, you’re either close to peak or beyond. Now brace yourself for a New England winter. Brrrrrr! 🙂

    • Our fall was a little odd this year. We’re in a rain deficit, so the leaves turned, browned, and fell pretty quickly. In fact, the last windy day was like a ticker tape parade, although it was the last of the leafy holdouts coming down. Be well!

  3. The colors in the photos are just gorgeous, Kevin! I loved the autumn leaves! And Nat’s version has always been a favorite. I’m glad I found that somehow WP disconnected us. LOL! Suddenly I wasn’t following you. If I don’t hear from someone for a little while I usually go to the site and figure out why. 🙂 Hope you’re continuing to do well with your downsizing efforts. With the glorious outdoors we just don’t need as much stuff indoors, I don’t think!

    • Hi Debra. I’m glad you enjoyed the photos and even more so that I took the photos when I did. In no time at all, the combination of cold, wind, and a rain deficit resulted in a massive leaf fall. Downsizing should be so easy and quick! 🙂
