Beauty in the Details

The rains stopped for a few minutes. I filled the bird feeders and took my walk about the yard. It is chilly. The leaves are piling up. I find the colors and shapes so lovely.
The Maples are brilliant. The contrast of greens leaves and brown branches with oranges, reds and yellows against blue-gray skies is inspiraing to me.
The crab tree is full of berries. The raindrops remind me to look at reflections. I look deeper. With out the marvel of the butterfly to distract me I look for the beauty in a fallen leaf.
Once again Mother Nature changes her palette. It is beautiful outside.
We need the rain.

Hi Sprite!
Your shimmering glitter is so delightful. Thank you for popping in.
The colors outside are incredible.
As the light changes so do the colors!
Maybe a few photos of the different mums in bloom would be fun!
I think Mother Nature brings out the best in me! As I look deeper into the natural world I am filled with the wonder of life.
