Autumn in the Woods

It's dark and dripping today.

Autumn has come to the woods.
The underbrush and leaves are starting to turn and drift.

Drips suspended in time with bits of the gray sky trapped inside each drop.

Leaves cocked and resting before they dry and blow back into the woods.

Canoe waiting to skim along the dark waters littered with color.

Last of the garden view.
Only a few tomatoes left and the carrots that we will bury under piles of dry maple leaves so we can dig them out to enjoy over winter.

It's cold and gray today.
Perfect day to stay in and get the house in order.
Think I'll light a fire..

Happy Monday to you..

It's gray on the West Coast too. I just can't shake the feeling that it is going to be a long, gray winter here. Where are my sweaters, I wonder?

I hope you had a wonderful day inside. :>)
