FOCUS FRIDAY: ORANGE RUFFLES


October
in Wisconsin.

Over the weekend
we drove
200 miles.

Searching
Searching
Searching
for 
GLORIOUS COLORS.

Alas.
We remained in
PACKERS COUNTRY.

All the trees were
GREEN
and
GOLD.

We were
OBVIOUSLY
too early.


Thus,
ORANGE RUFFLES:
my
TRIBUTE
to fall
COLORS.


Bittersweet October.
The mellow, messy, leaf-kicking,
perfect pause between the opposing miseries of
summer and winter.
- Carol Bishop Hipps - 
"October," IN A SOUTHERN GARDEN, 1995.

I LOVE comments and followers!

  3. Beautiful! In Vermont, our colors just started coming in, but now it is raining and the wind is blowing all those newly turned leaves off the trees. It was very fleeting, but I did capture a bit of the autumn glory.

  5. Beautiful capture of fall colors. Just visited your instagram photos. Fell in love with one. Any chance of getting a copy of one? It spoke to my love of shamrocks.

  8. Pretty photos. I'm not finding much red/orange leaves here either. I think they all turned early and now just the yellow ones are left.
