Nature Notes


The leaves are not on the trees anymore. A time to study the wonders of nature, and in a single leaf there is so much beauty.


Every leaf speaks bliss to me,
Fluttering from the Autumn tree.

  4. Leaves are always beautiful, even when they're not on the trees. I look at the naked limbs and think they look cold - but they'll be dressing up in spring finery in a few months.

  5. Plenty of greeneries here, as it's sunny all year long.

  6. Our oak leaves turn brown but don't fall off until pushed off by new growth in the spring. The others have all lost theirs. The thing I love the most about winter is that I can see the birds up in the tree branches and they are hidden in summer. The last to fall around our yard this year... the Japanese maple.

  12. I miss leaves, the way they hide the uglinesses in cities, but I love seeing the trees exposed!

  13. Hi Denise, lovely pictures of the circle of nature. It is the time to admire the stark limbs of the trees against a wintry sky. The dry leaves tell a whole story of a wonderful summer past.

  15. Isn't it amazing how we thrill at the first leaves popping out and don't much think about them until they are threatening to fall and treasure each and every one of the last of them.

  16. Those look like oak leaves. We had an oak tree in our backyard back in Illinois. Do stay warm and cozy.

  17. I love the beauty of the bare limbs in winter, something we cannot see when the leaves are on them. :)
