That all changed this week.
We had wind and lots of rain. The leaves fell from the trees like crazy and made big mounds in the street gutters. At last, it seemed like a true autumn. The leaves made beautiful mosaics of color on the ground.
My husband sees the leaves differently since has spent the last few weeks being able to keep up with the leaves that fell.
Now he is overwhelmed.
It really is a case of whether you see the glass half full or half empty.
I see the colors and shapes as an inspiration so I run inside to find my camera and to capture the moment.
Here are some more of the images I was able to gather from my yard on this beautiful autumn morning.
I am going to take the colors from these images and make a color palette in my nature journal...yellows, greens, browns, reds, purples, and oranges. Watercolor crayons or pencils? I will share my colorful mosaic when I finish.
