Diversity: The Color of Life

Coming into the house, after what appears to be the last unseasonably warm October day, I glimpsed again at the magnificent colors punctuating the grey cloudy sky — burgundy flowering plums, orange maples, yellow-green birches, tanned leather oaks, fiery red sassafras — their leaves twirling in the wind then freckling the autumn ground.

Curious, I look closer.

 

 

Round, oval, small, huge, striped, speckled, smooth, crimped, crumpled and curled.

 

Each one is distinctly beautiful in its own unique way.

 

I am convinced we were created to be different and our diversity is as fascinating as nature’s endless combinations.

  1. I’m so happy it gave you as much delight as it did me. Yes, autumn, nature for that matter, is simply grand! If only more people appreciated it can you imagine how awesome our environment would be?

  2. I did this same thing this past weekend–appreciating leaf shapes, textures, sizes, colors! I made a leaf collection like the ones from elementary school. I didn’t tape them to pages; I gathered them and then gave them back to the forest. I love autumn 🍂 Your slide show is grand and made me smile!
