It was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet.... As Ichabod jogged slowly on his way, his eye... ranged with delight over the treasures of jolly autumn. ~Washington Irving, "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"

The Mushroom and the Oak Leaf

Look deep into nature,
and then you will understand everything better.

I like your photo; it is unique, and Einstein's quote is apt.

I will be happier when it gets just a tad warmer to get out and enjoy. There is still snow on my deck, but I'd love to go out and just sit and look :)
