Autumn

Beautiful full moon we had the other night
Autumn
 "When the trees their summer splendor
Change to raiment red and gold,
When the summer moon turns mellow,
And the nights are getting cold;
When the squirrels hide their acorns,
And the woodchucks disappear;
Then we know that it is autumn,
Loveliest season of the year."

A wonderfu quote for fabulous photos of autumn.

Gorgeous! And I love your ground bouquets as well. The moon shot is so ethereal and lovely that I'm getting jealous looking at it. Do you have a tripod or just a very steady hand?

Beautiful words and photos Lorraine. My very favorite time of the year.

Tara said...

Beautiful photos. I so love Fall.
I haven't been blogging in a few days, so looked back at some of your previous posts. Oh my, poor Raider. We had a similar episode with our Schnauzer when he was a puppy with bumble bees. We almost lost him. It was very scary. Hope he recovers quickly.
hugs,
tara

So sorry to learn about the ordeal Raider went through, poor pup. Glad he is going to be ok. He looks so relaxed and cute on his pillow.

So enjoyed your Fall Mosaic and the stunning Moon Shot! It was a beautiful full moon...I got a few shots through the clouds...saving them for Halloween...not near the color as you were able to capture.
