"Every picture has its shadows, and it has some source of light." - Joni Mitchell
Beautiful leaves and photos. In 20 minutes our chance of rain will rise to 1 percent. At 6 this evening, it goes up to 2 percent. I don't think I can stand the excitement.
Magical. Could a human being create such beauty? I doubt it.
Come on, YP. Think Michelangelo. Indeed the whole of creation. God's soap opera, and rather vindictive, style not withstanding.U
Mike D'Angelo might have been able to paint such a leaf but creating an actual physical facsimile of the leaf would have been beyond him. Who is God?
Picked up three of those beauties early this morning. They now sit, in a small vase, on the window sill along which my main desk runs. An effortless pleasure . . . if you know where to look and find it.U
Autumn leaves are just so beautiful. We are in full color here in Montana. Vivian Swift has a tutorial about painting these beautiful leaves in one of her earlier blogs. She does an amazing job of capturing their beauty.
I'd go for maple. We don't have too many maple trees of that kind here.
Our sycamores leaves just turn rust and drop. I'd say those were maple, indeed.
I love seeing the fall leaves through your blog and others. It will be a while before we see any here.
Some chlorophyll is still hanging on to the last leaf.
Those are maple leaves. I have a few of those trees in my yard. The two out front of my driveway turn a golden yellow. You certainly found a pretty mix of colors. Enjoy your day, hugs, Edna B.
Such beauty. I think this must be why autumn is my favorite season. The cooler temps, blue skies, balance of light day and night, and the color of the leaves.
probably maple. they are pretty. my maple tree doesn't do that, just turns yellowish brown and then brown.
Lovely! I drive by two trees with similarly glorious leaves, but there is always too much traffic to stop & get a photo.
Sounds quite ridiculous but I just realized how similar sycamore and maple leaves are.
I had to look up sycamore leaves because I'm not familiar with them and it turns out there is such a thing as a "sycamore maple" along with at least a dozen other kinds of maple (and it looks very like our sugar maples). The things I didn't know I didn't know :)Here it is: http://www.tree-guide.com/maple-leaves?page=1Your fall leaf posts always make me want to do a similar post but as yet I have failed at that. I do enjoy yours, though.
There is a street here with a huge Ginkgo tree and the yellow/golden glow from that is just stunning when the leaves turn.I have read some of the Newbery books, I was an Elementary school library assistant, which means I was the Librarian. Number the Stars and The Giver by Lowry were good, Sarah Plain and Tall is really a lower reading level, but a sweet story. I knew two sisters who reminded me of Jacob Have I Loved-what a moving story and Paterson's Bridge to Terabithia, tears with that one. I liked Dicey's Song by Voight, but the first one, Homecoming, I really loved. I pulled out a map of the state they traveled through because I was so invested in the tale. I've read other books by her and I think she's a masterful writer for YA. Of course, as a horse-crazy kid I read King of the Wind and I remember reading Hitty: Her First Hundred Years (Field) and enjoying it.
