Leaf and Rosehips

size date


Walks by my pond are always rewarding. There are always so many delightful things to see. I have some wonderful wild roses in several places around the pond. In Spring they give off the most heavenly scent. In fall they produce beautiful rosehips. Admiring them one fall day I spotted this bright fall leaf balanced perfectly. One slight breeze would whisk it away. One cloud could have blocked the sunlight. Happily I was in the right place at the right time.
