An Autumn Walk

This is a tiny piece - it measures only 1.75" x 2.25".
Amazing detail for such a tiny thing.

It's Wednesday. It's Autumn.
Let's try to dodge the rain showers and take a walk.

Watch out!  One of the prettiest things right now is the Poison Oak!

The last of the wild Asters are in bloom.

Snowberries - no one seems to like to eat 'em so they hang of the branches week after week.

 The Licorice Ferns are still bright green. 

I found a few cherries they birds had missed.

Autumn means an explosion of Oak Galls.

The leaves of Big Leaf Maples have not yet begun to turn.

The Vine Maple leaves, however, are already bright scarlet.

Well I looked through my books and I've still not managed to identify this fruiting tree.  It really bugs me as I'm quite sure that in the spring when it is in blossom, I have no problem figuring out what it is.  

Someone is already munching away on the fruit of the wild Dogwood. 

The Douglas Fir cones are ripe.
And the Cottonwood trees are beginning to drop their leaves.

Melissa said...

Beth, the peacock finish is so cute - tiny indeed.

Thanks for the autumn garden walk! I think it will be a sunny day and I will have to catch up in the garden!

Charity turned out so cute and lovely!

We're starting to see color changes here too.

Can you look back through pics you took during the spring to identify the fruiting tree?

Margaret said...

Love your Charity finish! Love the pics from your walk too.

Charity is a really cute piece! Nicely done! I don't see much evidence of autumn yet around here. We are having Indian Summer--it is quite lovely! thanks for the walk!

Thanks Beth for the lovely fall walk!
