Fall's Final Farewell
Mother nature has teased us the past week with her mild temperatures. We were in the 60's today, expecting rain and temps to drop to half that by Sunday. I couldn't resist taking a shot of my ornamental grass, which resembles peacock wheat to me. See the contrast of the wispy ends, against already barren trees, as the sun peaks through white clouds. I wasn't sure the grass would grow, but it flourished this Summer growing so huge!
This shot taken at the end of my road, and the leaves have already fallen off. Regretably a sign Winter will soon mark the horizon, with empty tree limbs. Isn't it stunning to see the beautiful reds, the true climax of Fall!
I call this one my lucky money tree! Reminds me of golden coins hanging from the branches. Makes you want to grab one, and hold it in your hand. I've had a great time taking Fall foilage photos. I'm hoping our Winter is a mild one! Have a great weekend, stay warm!
