Caught in the act
I cannot bear to sweep up the fallen persimmon leaves until they are truly faded. Here is the front porch scene. That odd looking upright thing is the inside of a water heater, a heat exchanger, I believe. They come in many different shapes:
Water in the spillway:
Lacy lichen pattern:
Those last 2 photos are in honor of the early morning low fog we've had for the last few mornings, because they represent the color of the world as I step out the front door.
Lately I've been a little obsessed with the here and now and so here is an X to mark the spot. This spot, right here, where we all are.

L0vely post! Naughty squirrel!ReplyDelete
Thanks Angela...yes, I was really surprised to catch him, almost as if he were posing...ReplyDelete
the picture of that squirrel is so sweet.ReplyDelete
Hi Deanna...I loved watching him. Sharing life with the animals nearby is always entertaining...ReplyDelete
Oh, Suzanna...you must of had such fun watching him! Oh, and the persimmon leaves are gorgeous, no wonder you leave them there. And the watery spillway..wow.ReplyDelete
Hi Penny...as I write this, I'm watching another squirrel eating something, I can't figure out what, in my back yard. After looking more closely...it's the buds on the camellia tree. What a saucy little critter.ReplyDelete
Oh, what a lovely picture of the squirrel.ReplyDelete
when I was a child we went to a park where you could feed them peanuts, they eat out of your hands.
Lovely x of leaves. Your work is beautiful!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Susan...I'm seeing geometry everywhere...ReplyDelete
Great how you "caught" that squirrel... and I would leave those beautiful autumn leaves where they are too !!!ReplyDelete
I love your X, good place to be as I see it !
Hello Els! I'm going to have to sweep off the front porch pretty soon as the leaves are fading fast. We had lots of wind last week so the tree is looking rather wintry now too...ReplyDelete
Suzanna, I love your x marks the spot piece, very nice. The leaves ARE gorgeous, I agree -- leave 'em! Great photo of the squirrel, too, they're not easy to catch being still!ReplyDelete
Hi Peggy...thank you so much! Nearly all the persimmons are gone now...I'm going to make some cupcakes with the ones that are left...I think that squirrel liked having his picture taken...ReplyDelete
Hi Sandra...I wonder if I were to be still enough, if the squirrel would eat out of my hands...I feel a little cautious of them. I'd have to approach them little by little...we are certainly aware of one another...Thank you for stopping by!ReplyDelete
Lovely felt... great design!ReplyDelete
And I can't believe you caught that squirrel in the act like that!
I think that squirrel kind of wanted to be photographed!ReplyDelete
