This is our cat, Puma. He loves being outside where he can enjoy the beauties and wonders of the earth. Then he comes back in to tells us all about it.
One of the features I love about our home is the walnut trees lining our front yard. Cleaning up the nuts and the leaves keeps Bruce busy in the fall. But that is also one of the times of year when the trees are most enjoyable. For a short time the yellow leaves on the branches are very vivid and bright. It lights up the yard in radiant yellow hues. Then the pointy leaves flutter to the ground, where combined, they make a beautiful yellow carpet on the still green grass.
I took these pictures Wednesday morning. Today- one day later, the green on the lawn is barely visible as the leaves have had plenty of time to create their magical quilt to warm the earth.
