Wet Autumn Leaves




falling leaves
hide the path
so quietly

The rainwater really makes the colors shine and I love that patch of moss. I can almost smell the dampness in the air!

once again I look at that wonderful shot and think what a great jigsaw puzzle it would make. Thanks for seeing the wonders right below our feet!

Those colors are reall rich. I have not seen anything like that here yet and I suppose I should be thankful most everything is green.

I love pictures of leaves with fall colors. We're lucky if we get much color this far south. I enjoyed looking at the colors YOU've got there!

I feel like a recording, but it is so true when I say this (and the others) are so beautiful.

It's great to see all your Fall pics - haven't been her for a while!
I made an artwork like this - taking real fall laves and gluing them on canvas, and painting in between therm - I love Fall:)
