These sapling cherry leaves caught my eye,
Half and half.
How do they do that?


And what was this pink thing on the driveway?
Turns out it was a naked acorn!!!
I had no idea they were newborn pink inside.

Peekaboo Fog


The fog came in yesterday morning, nearly obliterating the trees.


Same view, 5 minutes later.

Peek-A-Boo!!!

Patterns

Yellow and Red


Windblown leaves line the curbs ...


And end up in unexpected places ...


These Ginkgo leaves will soon join the show ...

Glowing Fall Leaves


Down in the woods ...


Across the vacant fields ...


Even here at home.

The leaves are glowing with the colors and textures of fall --
On this blustery showery day.

Berries


Hawthorne


Oregon Grape


Wild Rose Hips


High Bush Cranberries

It's the time of year when the colors of summer have faded, and the vivid colors of fall have only just begun to show themselves.

Fog


A misty fall morning ...


Mutes bright fall colors ...


Reveals nature's patterns that I have missed before.

Sunshine will come later, with a whole new perspective.
