Devil in the Details

Sometimes it is easy to miss the cool little stuff when you’re surrounded by beauty.  Then it hits you in the face, literally.

I walked right into the branch because I was looking the other way, so when I turned back to see what I had I run into I about fell over in delight at seeing what must be the tiniest pinecones ever.  They’re about the size of a pencil eraser.  Thankfully this happened pretty early in my visit to Anderson gardens so it made me more aware of the little things around me.  Like this lonely little berry;

And these two colorful leaves hanging out with the remnants of summer ferns…

Still, I very nearly missed this last little bloom hiding in the depths of a bush.

 

However there was no way I was going to miss out on these awesome red and orange leaves!

That One Tree

You know the one, it just can’t wait and goes all red the moment we lose an hour of light.  Yeah, THAT tree.  Show off.
