OK, back to normal. Today's photos are from Kathy Fink. We featured Kathy's garden back in August. (Refresh your memory HERE) She says, "At this time of year, I like to get out and look at the tapestries of color but also at the individual compositions and colors in the leaves themselves. I made a photo study of the Japanese maple leaves in my garden and then decided to walk around my neighborhood in Arlington, Massachusetts. I kept discovering extraordinary gems and jewels like in a museum but with no price of admission. I hope to never take the remarkable transformation of my tea hut path for granted (spring and fall views included). Even the shadows of leaves cast on the tea hut window were alive with Fall Feeling this year." Gorgeous shots, Kathy! Thanks for sharing your walkabout with us.

Here is my favorite spruce tree, a 65th birthday gift:

hortiphila writes: Kathy, thanks so much for sharing your exquisite observation of autumn! I too enjoy the dynamics of the garden, this ephemeral quality reminds me to take time to savor each leaf that falls, look forward to the silent settling of snow on bare branches, the ensuing renewal of spring with its ethereal appeal and the fragrance of summer roses. Thanks for the reminder. Posted: 7:56 am on November 1st
kcmom writes: Simply beautiful. Thank you for reminding us that the beauty of fall -or any season- can be found in the small, immediate, close up views, not just lovely long vistas.

Several of those photos beg to become art quilts!

meander1 writes: Hmmm, those pictures are mesmerizing...such exquisite detail. It's a gift to have the photographer focus the viewer's eye so we do take that moment to notice nature's delicacy. The final photo is very soul soothing. Thank you, Kathy Posted: 7:23 am on November 1st
