Autumn beckons

rust&green

It is the birthing of a new season and the dying of the old. Both exist together as they do with every species. This tree fern has a whiskered texture as the leaves prepare to feed the ground below. Summer is in decay, humidity and heat dissipating likewise the cicada chirps. Autumn is sprinkling it’s magical orange fairy dust as the nights close in.

The Sweet Gum leaves are not ready to surrender to old age and the invasive Tallow bewitches us with it’s exquisite oriental leaves in every season.

Yet, the seasonal food is naturally colored for autumn and contrasts so prettily with the ancient rock and lichen.

    • Thank you! Our master planned city (cut down a tree or die…) is smack bang in the bottom half of the Big Thicket, an indigenous forest from the top of east Texas and west Louisiana to about 40 miles north of Houston. I do walk about 3 miles a day through the trails but the allergies are so bad that I can’t smell anything! 🙂
