I agree! Everyday wonders are in front of us, all the time. A wonderful photo.
What a beautiful scene – I love the way the leaves (from the birch trees I think) have dropped, like polka dots. And the David McCullough quote is a good one.
Thank you – your observation made me think of the bread crumbs in Hansel and Gretel …
It certainly is a magical scene. 🙂
What a beautiful photograph! A family of trees. The fallen leaves are like golden drops of sunshine.
Thank you! We are expecting our second storm in a week, this picture was made under calmer conditions ☺️
Ahhh… the quote was such a good reminder. I sometimes struggle with the tendency I call “nitpicking”. Things are never perfect, but where do we draw the line? Luckily I’m happily connected to one who gets things done rather than getting bogged down in trivial details. Luckily we balance each other out! I’d call that perfection. 😀
