The bounty of nature's beauty never ceases to amaze me. However, it is the true artist in you who catches the peace and yet vibrancy of that art is a miraculous way. Painting with the canvas of nature in photos, is a truly wonderful way to show what the Lord has given to us, if we but open our eyes.

Yes, perfect phrase: Yard Art. They are that and more. I am finding them in my own neck of the woods. Actually had frost outside today. Rare here in East Texas.

I think your title is great...it reflects all the wonderful things that are outside our front door. Some of them more beautiful than anything man could ever create!

Wow to the pics above!

Kath said...

These are gorgeous. I'm having trouble capturing the browns, grays and purples I'm seeing around me. But I'll keep trying!

Claire said...

your title caught my eye first

the third photo from the top took my breath away

the second last photo had me captivated

and the fact that you were able to capture the delicacy and the puffiness and the life in each object just has me amazed.

your comments have warmed my heart this day ~ I love seeing your photos as well so many different places and interests.

the photo 2nd from bottom is actually on our pool diving board

the lone berry is called a "Turks Cap" and is native in the south birds/animals love the berries and flowers attract hummers in the summer..not sure about humans!

Elizabeth said...

love the title and photos - and the fact that it's still fall there. :)

spread your wings said...

so beautiful. it's wonderful how God has provided us with such beauty - art all around us - the ultimate creator. There is such beautiful color here in your photos.
It is so good to be back in the blogging community. I feel I have missed out. Seems there are so many more comments here since I have been gone. It's strange, I feel like I have missed out on a party or something. Isn't that odd?
Thanks for your comment while I was away. Hope you had the most wonderful Thanksgiving.
