Early Autumn

 The early morning skies seem to change with the dropping temperatures and it is exquisite!

 One bird in flight can fill me with the freedom to enjoy the moment!

 Gotta love the string bean tree with it's lush heart-shaped leaves!

 The subtle changes of the Cottonwood tree.

 Love smelling the fresh damp coolness of the river who reminds me to go with the flow.

 Ivy in bloom, little angels giggling in the breeze!

 Change shows up the moment it is noticed! Splendid!

 Berries on blue... very trippy and mesmerizing!

 The invitation from a lonely park bench! Don't mind if I do!

 Close to the ground the colorful leaves dance for the slow changing rocks. I feel their applause!

 I'm being spied on by a dear little deer... mama is also watching nearby!

 A cranky tree dragon makes me laugh. So scary...Not. lol

 An art exhibit from inside a tree canopy! Sunlight included!

 Cedar berries... mmnn what a pungent fragrance!

 Late summer blooms catch a red leaf at playtime!

 Cottonwood bark...what a great wallpaper that pattern would make!

There is a big wide path to outdoor exploration and no time like the present! Happy Autumn!

Late Summer Stroll

 I love a stroll where you walk a familiar route with new curious eyes. Something unusual will always come to sight to delight.

 Most people find spiders and webs creepy, but I could stare at them in marvel for many minutes, especially at sunset!

 I pass the locust trees all the time but this one called me to photograph from underneath. A great idea!

 This prickle ball (for lack of a better term) was found on a dying vine that had been uprooted by wind. I had to memorialize it!

 Now this is when I get really excited! A glowing fairy at sunset!

 Ok, for non believers it is a spider glowing in the sun while suspended from a bridge. Feel better now? (wink, wink)

 There is something so tranquil and mesmerizing about watching a river flow. I like to see the morphing shapes from the currents.

 I like this colorful church garden as it sits in front of the pink post office building in the background. 

 Oh the luscious flounces of the gladiolus! 

 Will be researching this outdoor "spider plant" with pretty purple pokers, unless someone can tell me what it is.

Day Lilies always look happy, even at the summers's end. They make me smile even when they are closing up for the night. This one is enjoying the last of the sunset just like me!
