Sunday Trees: Autumn’s Transformation

From tree to tree for "Sunday Trees"

Autumn in Transition

As long as it is autumn, you will see a few more autumn-themed posts from me, and today is no exception.

From tree to tree for "Sunday Trees"

Both images are from my front and back yards. That redwood was planted 28 years ago (from a seedling I received at Cal Expo State Fair). It is the tallest tree in the neighborhood and makes a beautiful evergreen backdrop to the autumn show all around it.

I love to add an inspirational quote with these posts, but instead, discovered a lovely poem by another blogger. Rebekah Stephenson, who blogs at  We Live Inspired, wrote this beautiful poem, so perfect for the theme. I hope you like it. Please visit her lovely website.

“Leaves of gold, their former green,
The richest color briefly seen
A canopy of purest light,
Falls glittering down into the night.
As winds of change draw ever near
The trees, they seem to have no fear;
They know it’s time, they must transform
And with that something new is born…”

Isn’t this a beautiful poem?

I’m sharing these lovely leaves depicting Transformation, for the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge, for The Day After’s Festival of Leaves, as well as for Becca Givens’ Sunday Trees.

  4. How true that the rich golds and reds of fall blaze for so short a time. I lived in New England as a child but have lived in the desert southwest for much longer now. Even so, all these years later, I still miss those beautiful oaks and maples in autumn.

  5. I planted redwood seedlings from the state fair, too! Mine aren’t as tall as yours, but they’re only ten or so. And they’ve got taller ones that I planted earlier to keep them company. And we planted a Japanese maple and some poplars for fall color as well. There’s nothing quite like the rich hues of autumn. 🙂
