autumn 2021

There’s a Japanese maple outside my front door that’s captivating my attention these days.

The color of the leaves is such a lovely copper-bronze.

I know the leaves won’t be here for much longer so I’m making sure to appreciate them while they are. They’re spent from spring and summer.

I expect the windstorm tonight will blow a good many of them to the deck below.

I’m looking forward to the show the moss and lichen that live on the same tree, will put on next.
