Perforated leaves like this abound this summer. Funny how nature works together…the leaf was produced and along came something hungry to create this masterpiece by giving it a lace appearance.
Hmm, who would think that a plain white bulb of garlic would have so much color hidden away?
Thank you for your support this year.
I truly appreciate your interest and your desire to view our world through these images.
Thank you for taking the time to pause and ponder.
I wish you peace
in your heart,
in your relationships,
in your neighborhood,
and in our world.
This solo pinecone rests on a colorful rock, all alone in the forest…or is it all alone?
As the colors of the leaves peak each year (that’s in October where I live) I’m reminded of the cycle they go through.
Spring brings the buds on trees.
Next, the leaves fully engulf our landscape as the sea of green is everywhere. I always feel a sense of peace when the trees are filled with leaves in May. I know that life has been revived after a long, cold winter.
As June and July pass I sink back into the comfort of sun and warmth, surrounded by a green forest that seems it could hang around forever.
The days go by, the daylight starts to shorten, and temps nudge a bit downward. I’m reminded then of the swan song to come in October. Then, the leaves give up their greens and offer their proudest hue view yet.
