The Gift of Color

I love the bright colors of fall and the cool air.  Yesterday I grabbed my camera and rambled around my yard taking photos.  I discovered a lot of things that I would never have imagined if I had stayed indoors.

The poplar trees waved their golden palms in the bright blue skies, the dogwood trees wore strands of rubies, squirrels scampered with their jaws filled with hickory nuts.  A doe appeared from the woods with twin fawns. Goldenrods spiraled near a field of corn, and lilac asters sprinkled stars on the roadbanks.

I'm sure there's a God who loves color.  Consider ambers caught on the ridgeline at fall, watercolors splashing the mountains, cotton clouds scudding through lollipop blue skies, gems licking drops of sunlight, and a wedge of geese resounding over a field of goldenrods.

Imagine the earth without color.  This must be proof of a greater power existing, an artist who loves color.

Some call it autumn,others call it God.

I hope my blogger friends will enjoy this season!

Oh how beautiful, the colors are glorious! I love your beautiful photos, thank you so much for sharing them!
Oh, Brenda, I totally agree - I believe with all my heart that there is a God who loves and creates beautiful color purely for the joy of it and that we may enjoy it, too. Thank you for sharing your beautiful color today!

Have a great weekend!

I'm from Maryland and I moved to Colorado. I miss the big fall show of colors. Here they get all excited by Aspens alone. They don't know real fall colors.
