Day 289 – Falling Leaves

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.  ~Albert Camus

Looks like a Christmas leaf to me

I am continuing on my theme from yesterday…Autumn.

The winds have picked up and I woke to leaves blowing everywhere.  Some had swirled into neat little piles, others were strewn all over the place.  A few hardy leaves were still attached to the trees, but I don’t think they will be there for long.

I don't know what kind of berry this is

The rain started to fall late in the afternoon and I’m sure the parched earth is happy about that.

  1. The white berries look like some I have on a little tree here. I don’t know what they are either, but the tree comes alive at times with little birds snatching them to eat.

  2. Symphoricarpos albus – snow berries .. is the name of the white berry – we call the puff berries because the puff when you press them. Love you photos and I love your quote – have used it too. My pick is the leaf with the frost on – at least I think it’s frost. Love your autumn leaves.

I'd love to hear from you
