I’m low on bark but long on leaves while walking through the park nearby that is blanketed in red and gold.  Each step I take makes a crispy, crunching sound.  Like something out of a horror movie. I even scared myself! You know, like when you’re watching something spooky, and you’re shouting to the TV.   “Don’t go in the basement!”  “Why would you follow the sound. RUN WHILE YOU CAN!” “DON’T OPEN THAT DOOR!”

Thank goodness it was so gorgeous or I might have had to turn around.  “NO! DONT LOOK BEHIND YOU!!!”

Don’t be afraid to take a long walk and breathe it all in. But before you do, drop by Cee’s challenge by clicking on the icon below.


Monday through Friday, after stopping at my favorite Dunkin’ Donuts, I take a quick walk in order to pick my little 4 year old friend up from school.  He is a very inquisitive, interesting, and curious fella who points out a lot of what I photograph when we’re together.  Most of the time he wants to be in the picture.  Sometimes, not. I told him I needed ‘browns’ and we gathered these photos as a team.  I hope you enjoy our collaborated gallery of browns.

Please do stop over at Ailsa’s to take in a little more of the rich, beautiful browns she’s gathered from other bloggers.  Just click right here.

Thanks for the visit and stop on back.


Foliage.  You’d think it would be easy.  Where’s a tree when you need one?

These are some of the photos I took the last few days.  I wanted new material, but I guess the good stuff isn’t going to ‘blossom’ for another week or two.  I hope you get some enjoyment out of these.

The first on is in front of my humble abode. I love the way just a concentrated part of the giant green tree is gold.

This is a long shot of the same tree.

Forgive the dried up old branches at the base of the tree.  The were picked up the next day :-).

The next two feature the side of the house.  This is starting to sound like a real estate ad.   (which, by the way, if you’re interested…)

  Close up of the tree in the above pic.

Facing the front of the house, this is the view through the pretty gold leaves.

And I found three trees the park nearby.  These poor things have no foliage :-(.

I just didn’t want to neglect them. 🙂
Don’t leave til you see these leaves at wheresmybackpack.  Thanks, Ailsa, for another fabulous challenge.
