Autumn Roundup

Hope you don’t mind if I linger with autumn a little longer. I’m just not ready for snow, ice and cold. Fortunately, it’s been unusually warm for this time of year. . . .

    How nice to look back at autumn one more time. In photograph 3, the orangeish color is a very, very warm ^color^ — yet I get the impression it was probably a cool, if not cold, day. (Those WordPress-imposed snowflakes don’t help!) Dissonance. Oh well. Thanks as always, Ms. Pearl.

    Fascinated by the two-tone leave … great shots, Carole!

    Autumn is really gone but we had thunder and lightning and such heavy rain today. Something we do never get in winter.
    I should read more e.e. cummings.
    The first shot looks as if the leaf was half in summer and half in autumn.

    Carole, after looking at your photographs and reading the words you add to your posts, I feel as if I have just had a moment of peace in which I prayed. Thank you for that gift that you share with me and others.
