Autumn Walk


Autumn Walk, originally uploaded by susanvg.
Autumn is in a state of decay in Eastern Ontario. Many of the leaves are down, crumbling underfoot. Flowers have gone to seed, their feathery bits float in the wind like snowflakes.

Gone to Seed

Seed pods turn into fantastic sculptures as they dry out .

There is beauty in this decay as the colour palette changes to browns. In the plant world decay is temporary. Spring will bring rebirth.
