Three Photos For Those Of The Quercus Persuasion.....

Yes, I said I was on a blog break and I still am, with my head up in the clouds but I found these lovely leaves yesterday and could not wait to put them out there into blogland! 

Pin Oak 3 sm

This is my pin oak, in the north part of the yard, and even in bad years it  puts on a color show all it’s own. Words can’t describe the colors that this tree produces, and frequently all on one leaf. With the sun bright, it glows in ways other trees don’t.

Greens, yellows , rusts and reds all combine into an amazing and slightly surrealistic combination. It generally is a tough choice on what to post……

But sometimes, you get something almost perfect, and it is obvious it needs to be seen by more than my eyes.

Enjoy this taste of Quercus Autumn!

Good Morning Anne Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share today. I miss the Fall beauty living here in the desert. We just do not see it. The oranges, the reds, the greens and yellows, what a display in one tree. I love seeing the beauty that God gives us year round.

Hope you are well sweet friend. Have a gorgeous Wednesday.

Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

WOW! There are no words to describe the feeling that the colors of Fall arouse in us. These photos are GORGEOUS! How blessed you are to be able to look at this tree everyday and watch the color bloom.
I LOVE what you did with the middle photo that fades into black and white around the edges. It really sets off the green in the leaves. Just beautiful, Anne.
I can't get enough of this Fall feeling!!!

Isn't Fall the most wonderful artist? I am stunned every day when I go outside to see what has been painted with the most glowing colors! These photos are gorgeous!!! TSUP!!! Silke

Oh, Anne! SWOON. :) Nothing like a fall leaf to make you smile. :) Have a wonderful day - I'm off to listen to an author talk. Escaping for a couple of hours - Xox! Pam

OOOOOOoooooooOOOOOOOOooooooooo. Pretty. I love the lighting in your shots. I got a wee bit jealous of all this fall color and posted my own...it's a bit lacking of a fall feeling. Hope you make great progress on your project. **kisses** Deb
