Dances with leaves

Last weekend dawned glorious and mild.

Bright tree copy

The autumn leaves lay heaped up and knee-deep…

Who could resist their invitation to dive in and take a leaf bath?

The kids couldn’t…

And neither could I!

My daughter caught me dancing with leaves.


Meanwhile, Oscar enjoyed the autumn sunshine

In a more dignified manner.

    I love all your photos, especially those with Oscar in.

  3. Your kids are gorgeous! That has to be one of the most spectacular portraits ever! Simply wonderful photos! In his heyday, Oscar would have been right in the midst of it yipping and twirling with joy! Glorious colors! You look like a forest nymph!

And Oscar looks SO dignified as he enjoys them!! Fun captures for the day and, yes, everyone enjoying the day in their own way indeed! Thank you for sharing the fun!! Have a great week!

    October 21, 2013 at 18:11

  20. Your children are precious! And so are you, playing in the leaves. Oscar is so dignified in his portrait. Probably guarding you all very seriously.

    October 21, 2013 at 18:12

  21. A pile of leaves is hard to resist–except maybe for the one who raked it up!

    October 21, 2013 at 18:19

    October 21, 2013 at 19:43

  28. For once Oscar is the one being dignified! Your autumn is glorious – all those big trees raining leaves. The lake’s refection is so spectacular.

    October 21, 2013 at 19:53

  45. perfect photos! Everyone was captured at their Fall best!:)

    October 22, 2013 at 03:50

  46. What a lovely post! When the grandchildren were small we used to go to the Botanical Gardens and bury ourselves in the heaps of leaves . . . the gardeners were not amuse but we certainly were.

    I am having immense problems uploading a photo to the link, it keeps on bringing a photo from weeks ago and there is no way I can change it. Since the photo is of grey water, it is not exactly inviting to come and see the wonders my present world offers. I am really at my wit’s end. Even with the wrong photo it wipes out my ULR so I cannot be found. I wonder what God or Mr.Linky are playing at? Can you help? In the older version of Mr.Linky I never had a problem.

    October 22, 2013 at 09:34

  54. Kicking the fallen leaves – one of the joys of chilhood(and adulthood).

    October 22, 2013 at 09:55

  55. That’s probably like I would have at home, for the moment I am dancing under Palm trees, lol !

    October 22, 2013 at 10:53

  56. I love the view across the lake, with all the trees there wearing their autumn best!!! I love to scuff through the leaves, and hear the sound they make!!!

    October 22, 2013 at 11:52

  57. Playing with fallen leaves is a mark of good mental health!!

  65. I especially love the action shot. It’s so hard to capture that. And the orange is superb.

    October 22, 2013 at 15:33

    October 23, 2013 at 00:48

  74. Al

    Great photos. I’d love to dive into those leaves – we don’t get piles like that around here.

    October 23, 2013 at 01:32

  75. We don’t get leaves till December, so do some dancing for me!

    October 23, 2013 at 03:37

  76. These photos absolutely capture the joy of Fall. Everyone is enjoying the season as well they should. Great photo descriptions too. Have a wonderful week.

    October 23, 2013 at 05:45

  77. Jumping into a leaf stack is so much fun for children (and adults!) I loved the action shot you you throwing the leaves in the air. Autumn joy!

    October 23, 2013 at 07:53

  78. We don’t have autumn leaves falling like this in abundance – only where someone might have a tree that sheds it leaves – Australian trees don’t do that – so I have no idea what this feels like – but it looks like fun! Have a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by my blog this week.

    October 23, 2013 at 16:14

    October 24, 2013 at 23:01

  85. Wonderful photos! This post reminds me of my grandmother’s favorite poem, “October’s Party” by George Cooper. (October was her favorite month, and interestingly she died on Oct 1 nine years ago at age 95).
