I’m not sure where autumn is hanging out, but it certainly hasn’t made its way to Northern Alabama. I’m finally seeing a little color in the leaves, but I’m still seeing way too much green for November.
Back in September, I’d had high hopes for the usually brilliant autumn, so I set up a postcard swap to celebrate the season. By the time the swap deadline loomed, autumn was still pretty scarce in this part of the USA, so to uphold my end of the swap, I had to send my partner an older photo.
I shot this photo late last autumn. I don’t even remember the circumstances, but as I was scrolling through photos, I was drawn to the burgundy leaves. I also like how this photo looks “right” no matter which way I turn it. 🙂
Fortunately, I can always count on my swap-bot friends to deliver. My penfriend Beckra, shared her “experiment” with photographing through a rainy window with gratitude for autumn colors on rainy grey days.
This photo is so gorgeously abstract! This shot actually inspired an edit of one of my own photos for another autumn swap (I’ll share that in a few days).
As I was decluttering my desk two days ago, I found a photo Beckra captured last autumn.
Doesn’t this one look like a painting? I appreciate how Beckra captured the multicolored awesomeness of autumn in both photos.
I was finally able to get a bit of this year’s autumn about a week ago when we visited the Nashville Zoo to celebrate the birthday of one of my little one’s friends. I found these beautiful leaves as we were exiting the zoo.
The zoo was decked out with pumpkins, mums, and other fall decor, but none could compete with the artistry of Nature being herself.
Until next time…

beautiful post. and great leaves. Happy Autumn
Thanks, Christine! Happy Autumn to you too! I’ve been loving all the autumn photos you posted in Love Notes!
It’s defo autumn here in Germany! Leaves all over the sidewalks, rain, temperatures about 0 – Celsius at night … 32 ° F – but hey, it’s November, can’t complain. Time to work on my annual advent calendar for my (grown up) cousin.
We haven’t had much rain here either. My fear is we will suddenly go from temperatures in the pleasant upper 80’s F to a cold and soggy winter.

Your winters in North Alabama are different from the ones here in Northern Germany, anyway . We are way more North.
Thanks for sharing these gorgeous cards with us Chandra! Reminds me it has been a long time since I brought home leaves to craft with or just enjoy. Hope fall finds you soon 🙂
