Decay


I love everything about the Fall, the colours, the crisp air, the

crunching sound of the leaves as you walk through them, and the fabulous smell of decaying leaves. I saw this leaf today and was enchanted by the textures of the leaf, the wood, the cobwebs and the lacy membranes that are so tentatively holding onto some of the holes.



Another view of the leaf......










A couple of other photos of vegetation - not as decayed........




And do you see the little woodland sprite peaking out......


I did get some pretty pics of red, yellow, orange leaves, but these are more interesting to me.

Thanks for the kind words Sue, It's always so nice to hear from you! I loved meeting your daughters on there blog, very pretty young ladies. Loved the leaves, you see things I cannot and I love that. Take care my friend. Do you have another blog of your art?? Peace

Fall is the shutting down time before the long sleep. I love it all! Thanks for sharing your pix!

If I would read first and ask questions later, I usually get my answer. It's called read the directions, something I still don't do. Found your selling blog. Have a good night, Pearl

I really enjoyed your pic's. I have loved Fall as early as I can remember.
I enjoy gathering the interesting and decaying foliage.

Yes...fall is my favorite season. Just gorgeous! The photo of the partial skeletonized leaf is beautiful. I could just see it incorporated into a fairy scene somehow. Thank you for sharing!

Sweet Sue of the lovely daughters. If you can believe it the only laughing moment of the weekend was me having to clean Jacquie after she had diarrhea and we were both laughing because I was gagging and the mask kept slipping over my eye.

I know gross, but it was funny.

Love Renee xoxo

I love decaying leaves also Sue... You found a great example! Don't you wish you could keep it just the way it is... is there a way to preserve those kinds of things? I wonder.

I wish fall would last longer. There is nothing like taking a walk when the trees are dropping their leaves, and the colors are spectacular! I go out of my way on evening walks to crunch leaves, I love that sound :-)
peace

The title 'decay' pulled me right in...expected, well I'm not sure what I expected...I got pretty, pretty, can almost smell the beautiful decay...hug, hug...
...and I wonder too about the doll making?

Sea Gypsy said...

Yes! I do see the little woodland sprite! I can see her and she is wearing the textures of the decaying leaf.
