a time to rest ....

I don't seem to have a lot of words at the moment, but, inspired by my cousin's blog to search through my camera lens for beauty, I went out last night to see what I could find.

Behold, even as life appears to be fading from the autumnal scene, beauty and hope are still there to be discovered:

Yellow wood sorrel flower


Red maple leaf, fading to winter brown

Feathery foxtail

Sweetgum leaf - the showy ones this year

Coneflower "pincushion"

Star Magnolia: a common bush, afire

next year's flowers!!

What I saw when I looked up:  notice anything odd about this dogwood branch?!

Lilac - how I wish I could distinguish the flower buds from the leaf buds, to properly gauge my hopes ....

Pennsylvania smartweed

Crepe Myrtle buds, biding their time.....

entrancing shadows

Hibiscus seedpods

Honeysuckle and Ivy

summer's abandoned lawn chairs

Persimmons & pears

how those leaves catch the light!

Chives seedpods (drying in a bag, to catch the seeds)

It only took standing up, and walking around with the camera, searching out the eye candy hidden in every beam of late afternoon sunshine.  Even after the sun had set, I was still finding treasure upon treasure.

It's always there, His goodness.  It just requires faith, and focus.
