Taste Her Sweetness

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority.
~E.B. White
One of my ALL TIME Favorite books as a child was Charlotte's Web,
by EB White.
I remember getting this book as a child and falling in love with it.
It may have been the book that instilled a LOVE of reading in my soul.

Another favorite shot. I also like your camera critters and sky watch posts. I looks like we are having the same type weather as you are.

Beautiful leaf! The orange colors are stunning! I adore the quote you used, too.

Great macro! Yes, we had a big rainstorm Tuesday and lots of the leaves are down now and trees bare. . . but that means, SNOW is coming soon!

Goodbye to summer, goodbye to fall, hello winter.

LOVELY! I'm almost more impressed with the colors in the background than with the leaf! LOL! It's gorgeous!

What a beautiful leaf! Lovely close-up! And I have always loved CHarlotte's Web. :)

Wonderful photo, Kerri. I don't think I read Charlotte's Web until my kidlets were of that right age. That's when I fell in love with E.B. White. We read the others right after that.

That poor leaf still has some pretty color. Not many of them left now.

Ms. Math said...

I just wanted to say that I come back as often as I can and even if you don't have anything new posted, I still have a wonderful time looking at your old stuff! My eyes never tire of your work!
