My photos

the season changes trees have lost their green foliage ~ skeletal branches autumn winds blowing leaves pirouette in the air ~ gracefully landing the sky is ablaze with deep hues of red and gold ~ sharik bids goodnight bright colourful leaves scattered across the landscape ~ natures tapestry bright yellow pumpkins are ready for harvesting ~ halloween gargoyles proteinaceous silk adorned in silvery dew ~ arachnid artwork Written 13th October 2020.

Love your descriptive Haikus, Tom: The leaves pirouetting is a great image because many of them do. I have a fondness for dewy spiderwebs too. So glad I visited. SuZ

Thank you very much Suzanne, love to see those webs covered in frost or dew, was watching a spider the other day weaving a web, fascinating to watch. Tom

Excellent haiku, Tom. Where I live the leaves are changing colors, but many trees won't be bare till January. Janice

So many delightful autumn images Tom. I think my favorites are nature's tapestry and arachnid artwork. This would be my vote for POTD if I had a say, these are just perfectly lovely snapshots of the season. Best, John

Hello Tom, autumn is a beautiful season. This is when Mother nature spreads her paint boxes of colors to show the beauty of her colors. Enjoy your evening my friend.

I fear the virus will make parents keep their children at home this Halloween, Tom. Sure would like to see some trick-or-treaters!
