Auriate deciduous-ness

A rather belated entry for Paula’s Thursday’s Special Pick a word. Brought on by autumnal inspiration this week.

Golden Japanese maple leaves.
My maple is turning golden: Aureate and Deciduous.
My fuzzy friends Ginger (with the ginger-y spots) and Asta.
The pups ready for their walk: Canine and Deciduous and Aureate.
A withered brown maple leaf.
Ready to fall: Desolate and Deciduous.

I didn’t have a separate photo for Consecrated, but I feel like my yard is blessed during this golden season.

For Paula’s Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word.

Fall glory

The past few days have been glorious. The lower angle of the sun makes the fall foliage glow. The blue skies compliment the golden to red palette of fall leaves. We took a long walk today, it is already clouding up and the next few days will be rainy, if the forecasts are correct.

I also want to share this great quote that I found yesterday:

For Sunday Stills: a celebration of leaves.

If you haven’t already:

Fall way

I applied a bit of an Orton-ish effect to this.

These are from our meander through the Chinese Garden and Arboretum at South Seattle College this past week. Lucky we got there when we did, winter is closing in a bit early.
