Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

The Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal.

Autumn offers no crocuses or tiny redbud blooms on trees. I thought of library books and contracts, being signed up for a team.  Commitment.

Everything is preparing for dormancy, dropping beautiful  gold and orange leaves in gutters like crazy.  There is a sense of approaching winter, the urge to cocoon, make soup.  And then the temperature is in the 60s and predicted 70 for Sunday. One day you are making up your bed with flannel sheets, boiling water for tea, making chili or soup.  The next day you are ripping off your sweater and sporting a cotton T.  The fluctuations feel strange and off.

As I left school, this is what I saw…

The fresh pine cones dangling for the pine trees branches, bobbing in the wind and the late day sunlight shining right on them said renewal to me.

Everything has been focused on the vibrant palette of the deciduous trees but look at this magnificent coniferous tree!
