It’s a Melancholy Day and the Leaves are Crying

Still they are beautiful.

  1. It has been a cold and miserable afternoon here too. I didn’t even bother to check if the leaves were crying. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Thank you for these gorgeous photos! I am located in western Oregon, expat Seattle-ite (west Seattle, Lincoln Park area) and where I am now we have more fir than deciduous trees – the occasional oak, walnut and maple but quite a bit of alder and cottonwood. The leaves from the latter two seldom turn anything but …. ugly – they fall before any autumn color happens. But the fir hold so much rainwater in their branches that even when there isn’t an actual downpour the slightest breeze releases a shower.

    • Thanks for dropping by! I’m glad you enjoyed the pictures. I’m very familiar with West Seattle, especially Alki and Lincoln Park. We’ve had lots of beautiful color here this fall but today is mostly rainy and gloomy, with remaining leaves just barely hanging on. πŸ™‚

  3. I always love close ups of drops of water. They’re so pretty! And to think it rained today in Fresno and we were all excited about itπŸ˜‹
