October Tapestry

Hello! It's cooler today...and grey.

I went to the salt marsh park, looking for evidence of bittersweet, to cut for a door wreath,

....to fill my crocks and bowls with color.

 I don't cut the bittersweet at the park, of course...but it gives me a hint when it will be the right day to trudge into the scary road verge [ticks! poison ivy!] on my yearly hike.

''A tangerine and russet cascade of kaleidoscopic leaves, creates a tapestry of autumn magic upon the emerald carpet of fading summer.''
Judith A. Lindberg









Below, last three pix: this is where the little wooden bridge and grassy path lead...out into the marsh, so we can see it close up, see the ospreys' nest and salt ponds which attract geese and ducks and egrets [but not today].
