"Autumn is a second spring...

...when every leaf is a flower."  --  Henry David Thoreau



This looks like a little kokopelli to me, a leafy petroglyph.




It's cooling down but still warm during the day.  The nights are cooler.  Still only a hint of the season to come.

Frost - oh, if we could have autumn without frost so I could enjoy my garden a little longer. Beautiful pictures of leaves about to become compost. Thanks.

Thoreau is right. These are great shots.

Oh my, it must be fall. Wonder if the kokopelli leaf could be considered a dendroglyph?
