Change of Seasons

Evidence for the change of seasons is everywhere. One cannot escape it — and why would I want to? All those luscious yellows, browns and oranges with lingering tinges of green, oh my! Those colors are just one reason why Fall is my favorite season.

There happens to be a nice row of ginkgo trees in front of my building. Today I took the time to capture a few shots of the leaves. Here, just a few (click on image to enlarge)

My favorite leaf during my favorite season. What are your favorites?

    That last image — the close up — is a piece of art. I hope you get it printed and framed. I have already developed quite a wonderful collection of fond memories of those exact trees on that sidewalk and in that gutter. Thanks for sharing and reminding me.

      The trees did feel like a receiving line to me — so friendly. And like so many groups of trees I witnessed, these trees have been turning colors and dropping leaves at very different rates. Nature has her own schedule.

    Wonderful pictures. I think of you every times I see the ginkgo trees along our street. You will discover they are all over Portland, as are various maples. Fall here is a riot of color.
