Autumn ends with apples of gold


Has today been the end of our Autumn? A chilly dawn revealed frost, and all around the country people have been saying that Winter is here. But what a glorious finale to the season!

Under cloudless skies, the woods shimmered with the last of the leaves and a profusion of berries.


Secretive paths seemed to beckon, leading beyond screens of twigs to the heart of the woods.

And there I found a beautiful tree, celebrating Autumn with apples of gold.

In my area, autumn is just getting started and there you are greeting winter already. Looks like a wonderfully wild place. Probably not many people have seen that amazing tree with golden apples.

Lucky you, Diane, just starting with autumn! I love autumn, and wish it would do an encore!

What a neat find. . . did you pick any? We had a terrible rainstorm tonight and lost power for an hour and a half. . .

You are at the right time. If you want silver added to you god, Norway is the place to come.

Phoenix C. said...

I didn't pick any apples, Paulie!

Hope your power is OK now.

Phoenix C. said...

We are having silver here too, RuneE, with frosts - maybe I should go and photograph the apple tree very early in the morning!

This is beautiful. I hope you don't mind but I have linked this to my latest post.

What pretty pictures. The apple tree is just beautiful, I bet the birds will be happy with those.

Phoenix C. said...

Thank you Jasmine. I don't mind the link - I appreciate it!

Phoenix C. said...

Catherine, I like to think the tree is there especially for birds and other creatures to feast on in the winter!
