Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

Japanese Maple

My front yard looks like this for about 3 days in the fall - honest .  Small Japanese maple - large sycamore - in intense technicolor !

Poison Oak Vine

This vine grows against the neighbor's shed, and at this time of the year, it catches the light and is lovely. The leaves turn luminous . Fortunately it isn't in the way.

Oak Leaves

Walking down by the river the other damp morning, I looked down at the pavement and saw these oak leaves flattened and strewn everywhere.

7 Leaves

The leaves on the witch hazel shrub are very showy for a few short days in the fall. They exhibit their extraordinary variety of color and then promptly drop , as if embarrassed by this sudden showiness .
The rest of the year the leaves are modestly uniform .
