The light was fading with the setting sun as I headed out late on my walk the other evening.
Much of the bright fall color had already been extinguished for the night.
And then I looked up, and noticed the top layer of someone’s burning bush.
The leaves, fiery red, were burning as brightly as I’ve ever seen them.
All I could do was smile.
Note to self: Keep looking up. 😉
I wait for them, all year long. ❤
We get a lot of visitors here on the Cape in autumn.
They make their pilgrimage without fail every year to witness the brilliantly colored leaves along the marshes and ponds.
I spotted my very first leaf peeper the other day.
This particular leaf peeper seemed to be quite the expert, with the keenest eyes and the sharpest focus I have ever seen.
And no binoculars required.
I could see that she had a real gift for picking out the best leaves.
She wasn’t the only one.
All in all, my leaf peeper appeared to be pleased by what she saw as she sniffed the air and –
Well, as you can plainly see —
It’s amazing how the rosa rugosas just keep on blooming as summer drifts slowly into fall.
To the delight of this little bee, coming in for a landing this morning down at Taylor Pond!
And lucky ME! 😉
Thanks for visiting me here at Images of Cape Cod! 🙂
Nature never ceases to astound me.
Always full of surprises.
Why, just lookee what landed on the deck while I was so busy making hats for Breeders’ Cup….
Surprise, surprise!! 😉
Happy Fall everybody!
