Colourful Autumn

 Red maple leaves in a local park

How can anyone feel grumpy when all you have to do is look outside or - better yet - walk outdoors to revel in such beauty?

 Reds and yellows

This time of year Mother Nature is not shy about wearing red and yellow, that's for sure!

The leaves in the first photo are/were on this tree on a sunnier day

Mother nature as proved a tad more modest here in the generally conservative Commonwealth of Virginia. :-)

John "By Stargoose And Hanglands" said...

And considerably more modest yet in the equally conservative UK.

I agree these glorious glorious colors have to make us happy, even just the photos of them. every day of the year their is beauty out doors, even in snow or rain or wind... i love the trees against the sky when they drop all these leaves.
