Happy Boxing Day

Most of the autumn color is gone now. What's left is hidden from view to all but the curious eye. I knew I needed a picture for my blog tonight so I walked with camera in hand.
The once colorful leaves now make up a crunchy brown carpet. You'd be hard pressed to sneak up on a deaf person this time of year.
The sun was low in the sky and when I walked up from the path in front of the barn, the trunk of an old hickory looked as if it were wearing a green velvet gown. I snapped this photo.
Tomorrow will be another beautiful day here. I think I'll catch up on the outside chores.
Happy Boxing Day.


  1. It sounds like you had a good boxing day... I had the day off and totally relaxed too :)

  2. The tree looks so snug and warm with its velvet gown! Enjoy the rest of the holidays.

  4. That is so beautiful!

  5. Ah yes and the remaining colours, reminders of as the leaves doth die, a new hope awaits through the winter and onto the rebirth that is spring.

    Wonderful words, wonderful photo, good sir. Happy Boxing Day.


  6. Interesting photo!
