In honor of the harvest season I decided to dedicate this morning’s walk to seeds. I had to pay attention, scanning the edges of this black-topped former railway easement, because they are more quietly beautiful than the flowers that begat them.
The woods and fields are a cornucopia filled with tints and tones of brown…
a bountiful array of shapes…
There’s still plenty of green foliage for seeds to hide behind but hungry wildlife are motivated scavenger hunters (so am I, even though I wasn’t searching for breakfast)!

These are lovely! What fine work!
Thanks, Tricia. I wish I could take credit for the photos but I was just the curator. I know there are many people who think autumn is sort of sad, but it’s my favorite season and I think it’s beautiful 🙂
