Fall -- or: Need some Color?


Hard to believe that these colors haven't been electronically enhanced. Maybe it was the dim light of this drizzly day that gave some colors an extra uplift. It was quiet, no wind, and I was in a sleepy mood. My back was aching, but I just couldn't stop taking pictures of the amazing color combos that this fall -- and possibly the choices that the park gardeners had made -- provided to the view of the visitors.


















I left the park with the feeling you get when you had some very delicious food. Indeed, color has something nourishing to me. We call them "saturated", for example. There are still blossoms, and combined with red or yellow leaves, the pink of the last roses adds an almost surrealistic or fauve taste that is amazing.
