“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”
I had to run a quick errand the other day and I couldn’t resist turning the car around and going back to take a few photos. We are in our peak and in some places, already past the prime colors of the leaves turning. I’m starting to see a few bare trees and branches, but there’s still lots of color around, if you look for it.
As I was driving, I saw a huge grouping of beautifully colored leaves. I drove on awhile and then I remembered we were suppose to get lots of rain later that night, with the winds picking up. That means most of the leaves are going to be gone and I decided right then to turn around on the next street.
So back I went and parked in a church parking lot to grab some of these photos.
Then I pulled out and onto the street that ran along side it.
Aren’t these colors beautiful!
I’m seriously so thrilled I decided to stop and take in the last remnants of autumn 2015.
And for those of you who saw my posting the other day about all the baskets I used to weave, I want to assure you that most of those are still with me at our house. You can read the posting here. The large whitewashed Indian painted basket, I gave to our daughter-in-law in Texas and the cradle went to our granddaughter. I’ve kept the Nantucket, ALL the twill weave baskets, the geranium and other flower hand-painted baskets, along with the very first basket I wove. I have lots more here that I didn’t show you, so don’t be upset and think I sold or gave them all away, because I didn’t, rather I couldn’t!
