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 Leaves

Vegetal Growth in my yard today: Notice that I focus on fall leaves not the weeds and unmown grass.

Due to our relatively protected location our Japanese maple is usually a bit later than many trees in changing color. It is a tree of many colors and varies from year to year. Here are some pictures from today:

I have a “thing” for hardy cyclamen. The variegated leaves are so charming. I was delighted to notice that it is starting to spread. I noticed a few single leaves here and there among the fallen maple leaves today when I was sweeping the walk today.  Yeay!

Happy fall to all!
