Autumn tribute




I have only have one Autumn tree amongst the native bushland. So it is very special to me.

Now that Winter has officially begun today I decided I owed it to this one tree to show off it's beauty as it prepares to sleep until greeting me again with the buds in Spring.



The view sitting underneath
 I spent quite a bit of time crunching through the leaves as they changed colours and fell into a glorious riot of Autumn tones underneath




Muli coloured leaves,, contrasting with trunk
 The trunk is  textural and a delight to the touch


Today
 After all the rain, wind and storms most of the leaves are off and the branches are showing through more and more

A stunning driveway now
 
 The driveway is now decorated
with the leaves 
and is a lovely change 
from concrete









impression left
So I will not forget the glorious sight too easily, the leaves that have fallen and been blown elsewhere have left their impressions behind.  It is nice to know they were there and I wonder where they are now. 
I do know that there will be another set next year, after the seedpods have fallen, to brighten my day, revive my spirit and remind me of the majesty of our 
Seasons of Change

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate it
