    I like the blue colors in the rocks.

  2. Bun Karyudo says:

    That’s a nice photograph. I like the beautiful fall leaves. They are seasonal jewels, I guess. 🙂

  3. Trini Lind says:

    Oh, they ARE pretty!! ❤

  4. Anne says:

    Is that a Virginia creeper?

  5. Blue Stones, Red Leaves……………..How Awesome.

  6. Mike Bizeau says:

    Nice photo Eliza. I rely like the composition. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Kathy Sturr says:

    LOVE VA creeper. Mine is a beautiful red and I wish I would have pulled the cup plant and rudbeckia laciniata early so I could admire it along the fence. I admire it anyway although the view is somewhat obstructed. Love spilling over these rocks. I didn’t expect much color this year with the dry conditions but they are emerging – so beautiful!

    This is surely found treasure. A lovely shot Eliza. 😊

  9. Laurie Graves says:

    Yes, jewels of autumn.

  10. This is one of my favorites, Eliza. I have always been attracted to rocks/stones.

  11. Kris P says:

    I love the fall color but generally have to do with photos from elsewhere as we get precious little of it.

  12. Chloris says:

    I have this Parthenocissus, I wish I had such gorgeous stones for it to wander through.

  13. Jane Lurie says:

    Love the red with the gray rocks, Eliza. Have a great weekend!

  14. bittster says:

    Beautiful. Is that bedrock or just a big stone? I am a lover of stones 🙂

    • Eliza Waters says:

      That is exposed bedrock that the river opened up after Irene came through and tossed those stones into a pile like they were marbles.
      I, too, love the texture and colors of stone, esp. encrusted with lichen.

  15. Beautiful! And I love the name of your post. Those red colored leaves are so pretty. And the large stones are beautiful as well. I love when I see large rocks and stones. Your zest for life and all the simple treasures shines through all your posts and photos! Very inspiring! I wish more people would be so mindful and appreciate the beauty of life more often. We are all surrounded by so much beauty in various forms every second of every day! ❤😀😍

    Our neighborhood Virginia Creepers are stunningly red this year. I must get some photos.

  17. MK says:

    Jewels indeed – both the stones and the plants which encircles them.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thanks! It looked like a necklace to me.

      • MK says:

        The plants do look like a necklace, but the stones look like ‘secret’ jewels. Especially the one in the foreground. It reminds me of the very stones that made up the neolithic stone circle I saw recently.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        These stones have been tumbled in waters for eons. They were pushed up to this spot by the last hurricane’s floodwaters in ’11, when the river rose about 10′. It’s to the left of my river reflection photo.
        I’d love to hear about the standing stones you saw.
