Now Jacob, don't be wandering in there and getting into any poison oak...

Oh, I love all the different shades and textures in this and the suggestion of that sun setting in the background. To you maybe it suggests cold and winter but to me it looks like the inside of a florist's shop.

I love the variety of colors and shades. Nature does it so very well, and you've captured it beautifully.

This photo could inspire Le Douanier Rousseau if he were alive... just add a lion or tiger....or crocodile.

Winter? Where's the snow? Come on, now!

Red leaves on a Red day! Happy Valentine's Day to you and Lois Anne! I hope you didn't forget to AT LEAST get her a card!

Beautiful colors. Looks like a nice place to go for a walk.

Rose said...

I thought autumn also...but that red is Christmasy isn't it? Love the colors here...

WOW! Our winter doesn't look anything like that!

Very cool and colorful!

Jacob said...

@ Safe Leif - Of course I got her a card, you silly goose! And we treated each other to a very nice horse painting by Fred Stone (the premier horse painter in the US) called "The Andulusian," which is now hanging in our living room!

That's a very familiar scene. I wouldn't have to travel far to see our version of the kind of simple beauty.

Your leaves turn red in winter? That's interesting!

Just gorgeous. I needed to see some color. IT's brown and bare in B'ham!
