Carpet of Leaves

Come unto me,

all ye that labour

and are heavy laden,

and I will give you rest.

Matthew 11:28

 

After a cold night, it is as though a release button was activated. All the leaves are silently drifting, floating, raining, falling down.

    Fantastic, why does anybody want winter when autumn is such a feast for the eyes. This is truly magical, colours like in a fairy tale.
    Wonderful pictures, Donna.

  6. HOW beautiful … I think I would never bother to rake them! For that matter, I might never bother to get any of my chores done for staring at the beautiful colors in the trees. Your world is lovely!

    Absolutely lovely Donna…all that golden color outside your window….aren’t we lucky to live in this beautiful state…except for having to pick up some of those leaves!

    Beautiful fall colors. My favorite time of the year, unfortunate we don’t get those colors here.

    Oh, yes, the never-ending falling leaves. They are so beautiful to behold. Hate to push them into a black bag and dispose of them. So mulching with them some too. But there are so many!

    Wonderful Verse! The leaves are starting to fall here also. Our woods are becoming refreshed with a nice new layer for another year of warmth…

    What a pretty view, Donna! It does make you want to lay down and roll in it! Last night, our rains’ took down many leaves, too.

    Hi Donna, a magic carpet for sure. Makes me feel like a kid again when we would make giant piles of leaves and run and jump into them and even hide from one another. Thanks for the memory jog.

    What a beautiful view out your windows Donna!

    The leaves are raining down here too with the sudden arrival of chilly weather. Brrrr!

    No priceless Persian carpet could hold a candle to that wonderful covering of leaves! Spectacular…doesn’t it make you want to run through them?!

    Yes, Nancy,
    The nippy weather has quickened our steps somewhat already.

    Aren’t they beautiful ? I love the crunch of them underfoot too.

    Yes, the sound of autumn…I wonder how wildlife can hunt successfully when every movement disturbs the leaves.
