    Beautiful array โ€”even in the โ€œdeathโ€ of trees there is beauty in knowing new birth is on the other side of dying and letting go.

  7. Beautiful – thank you

  8. Alice says:

    The layered-look of Autumn. Quite a variety growing there.

  9. Treah Pichette says:

    That would make a great jigsaw puzzle!

  10. It’s definitely like a colorful, crunchy carpet out there.

  11. Beautiful autumn forest floor ~ I love looking down under the trees as much as I love looking up into them. Love the mottled colors.

  12. I see mulch and nutrients.

    A treasure of nutrients for the forest floor or the garden!

  14. shoreacres says:

    We’re still so green. This is a lovely scene, and would tempt me to visit east Texas again — but I’ll have to avoid the pine forests if I want colored leaves!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Linda. We’re at the tail end of the season with the oak and beech trees left for color. But I am enjoying the smaller shrubs around the yard and seed heads that shine this time of year. Beauty abounds!

    A beautiful collage and image Eliza! ๐Ÿงก

  26. Debbie says:

    Such variety! And how cool that leaves don’t all turn at the same time … or the same colors!

  27. Widdershins says:

    Heh, our front lawn looks like that at the moment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Fun to explore everything in this shot ๐Ÿ˜Š

  30. Robin says:

    I love the various colors and stages. A mixture of life. Beautiful. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely leaves Eliza

  32. Nature’s random tapestry. Beautiful, Eiza!

  33. A beautiful and colorful find and capture!

  34. Here at my place with a mix like that they seem to breakdown much quicker than say stacks of all Oak leaves.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, they do. Oak leaves have tougher cell walls, so are slower to break down. I have a big oak tree in the back yard with tons of leaves. Once they are on the ground, I run them over with the lawn mower to ‘speed up’ the breakdown process.
      Hope you have a great weekend, Eunice!

      • Went to Popham Beach in Maine today tomorrow the Big E for Fiber show.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        Are you a fiber artist as well as a painter?

      • I used to spin as a child and I crochet and do macrame being 65 I lived in a time where my mom and aunts did everything and taught me so much but then I followed dads lead and worked 18 hours a day which left little time for crafts so now I guess I have finally just embraced retirement as I was forced into it with the wreck in 2000. Not in my rig but in a van hit by a Foxwood bus ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I was too young so fought back and trucked for 2 more years before the body said no more.

      • Eliza Waters says:

        One never knows where the road will lead us, I guess. Glad you are now able to sit back a bit and do the things that you find pleasurable. The best retirement has to offer. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Bless you it has been a journey for sure to find peace within.

  35. Jet Eliot says:

    Your talent with finding bouquets all around you is a gift, Eliza. I loved this forest floor photo, so colorful and complete.

  36. Beautiful colours Eliza.

  37. Priti says:

    Wow! Colour. Nice shot. Thank you ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™‚

  38. Dalo 2013 says:

    Out for a hike yesterday, and I loved looking at the trodden floor of the forest path… made me feel like I was in the midst of autumn. Your photo here rekindles the same feeling, an amazing array of the colors of fall.
