I went to the internet to find a quote for Autumn flame or flaming and it seems there is a cottage industry of images of bright red and orange foliage. So this week I add my leaves to the pile.  Where I am flaming fall is not a metaphor, with fires burning and temperatures climbing everything seems to be aflame.  I hope my weekly mantra of hot and dry changes soon.

Which images burns brightest for you?

I don’t really know any of the names of these beauties, because a friend passed these on to me, and she got them from a friend. That’s how my mother and her mother gardened. I love those kind of neighborly traditions. Sure beats the new tradition of shopping on Thanksgiving.

Photo Notes: Singing “On the First Day of December…” while snapping pictures with my iPhone 4s yesterday. Edited with Phototoaster. Do you have a favorite?
