shedding a gown of leaves


shedding a gown of leaves

Here is a photo to go with the tanka I posted at just_tanka

It's even more impressive, right after a frost, when the air is all still--all the leaves drop straight down, right around the tree only. But you can see something of the effect here.


There are a few more new photos at the flickr site (I think you can get there by clicking on "inatangle")--including one of a bunch of acorn caps.

Yes, that's very pretty too!

We come to Boston for the Walk for Hunger most years and enjoy the blossoms then--they're usually just past prime.

Thank you for posting this lovely photo of your blanket of leaves! this picture and the others at your flickr place are so lovely :)) i too enjoy seeing leaves fall in the stillness, without any coaxing from the wind.

It's a spectacular color show--especially in the early morning and late afternoon, when you get sunrise or sunset light mixing in.
