Looking a little closer….

Autumn is winding down and most of the bright fall colors are gone.  The color scheme of brown and green is what I see out my window these days.  After the vibrant fall we had, these toned down colors can seem a bit dreary even on a bright and beautiful day like today.  But I know there are still intriguing things to find out there.  One just has to look a little closer.


Look and you might see delicate, gossamer milkweed seeds about to be released upon the wind.


Or gracefully twisted branches that were once hidden by foliage.


Or dried seed pods that make up their own bouquets where their flowers once stood.


Or the nice, bright sparkle of red berries.


Just look...

Beautiful treasures are to be found in nature all year. As you say, we just have to look. Thanks for 'looking' and finding these ones. I love your new header photo.

These are gorgeous! The milkweed is so delicate looking. You did a great job with the close up. I love the look of the bare tree branches this time of year. They are stark but elegant.
