A winter abstract..



Finally the last leaves on my Chinese Tallow tree have fallen. There was quite an impressive pile, so impressive in fact that I had to demonstrate much self control once raked into a mighty pile not to dive in :) I think I've mentioned before the importance of having deciduous trees in the garden here in Perth.. sometimes it can be the only way to recognize that it actually IS winter! Couldn't resist having a play with the shot.. don't you think the effect below would be a super design for wallpaper, china, quilt cover etc :) TGIF take care and stay safe.. P.s. both images look so much better embiggened..

  2. I feel very much the same about those falling leaves. Sometimes that's the only sign we get that winter is really here. I LOVE the "play" shot! Very creative and very nicely done. It's a great pattern.

  5. I think you should embiggen both, frame 'em and hang 'em! Nice work!

  8. Nothing like the color and crinkle of a pile of leaves.

  9. One needs no reminder of seasonal changes in the U.S. Pacific Northwest, deciduous trees or not. I LOVE your second shot! I do paper crafting (greeting cards, mostly) and would love that as a designer background paper. The colors and pattern are perfect.

  10. Love the colour and patterns on the second photo Grace, certainly nice for a duvet cover.
    I don't get many fallen leaves in my garden, just the fig tree loses it's leaves, but even though the leaves are mostly yellowish/brown, not many have fallen.

  11. Haha I know the feeling of wanting to make a dive into a pile of leaves :)) Maybe we should just do it for once and do not care what other people think ;)
    Love the pattern too!

  12. Ha ha, yes I used to enjoy jumping into a pile of leaves in my younger days. Suspect my husband would not be impressed if I did here after he had raked everything up. LOL Love both pictures. Have a great weekend Diane

  13. It is always weird to see your fall as everything is blooming here :)

  14. That´s truly a great effect, Grace. Oh, yes, childhood memories (or... The Simpsons at the begin of each episode), jump into a pile of fallen leaves :-)

  15. A similar pile of leaves is now only a memory here but for me it will appear in the Mids
    west none too soon!
