The Fall is More than Pretty Mums

 

Fall leaves collage 1

The fall of the year is not just all about the pretty Chrysanthemum that appear in the market place.  I like to see the colours in the leaves of the trees and seed pods.  Here in my garden I found the leaves of the Virginia Creeper, Yellow Coneflower seed heads, the seeds of the Butterfly weed and Eringium a feast for the eyes.

I love the rich reds, yellows and golds of the Burning Bush, Boston Ivy, Clematis leaves and Sumac leaves.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.   Get out and enjoy the colours of autumn if you can this week and take your camera.

The leaves are starting to turn gorgeous colours here. Hopefully they don't all drop too soon before we can enjoy them and take lots of photos.

You've really found a variety of colors to photograph. We won't have much color here in Florida but we are feeling the cooler evenings!

Beautiful combinations of rich color. I love reds and golds.

Hello Val

There is a richness in nature everywhere you look in Autumn and you've captured it beautifully here.
I love all the seed heads - stunning photos - thank you for sharing!
