“Vestige of Autumn”
“It’s the nameless who leave a vestige in their wake.”
― Anthony T. Hincks
Spring, and as the wildflowers emerge from their winter’s rest, the survivors of the winter elements still cling tenaciously to their branches. The beach leaves, which have provided such wonderful hints of colour throughout the bitter, gray, winter months, are now showing the ravages of the season.
Leaves once bright yellow and copper, hang from the slender branches as desiccated shards, reminders to me of what once was, as they shiver in the breezes. At their bases, new buds await an extended warm spell to unfurl their contents and replace their predecessors.
New life, new growth, and reminders of what was and what will come again, in due time.

Great shot of what I call “ghost leaves”. Their gradual bleaching through the winter is something that I enjoy watching.
It really accelerated as it warms up. I’m also fascinated by the effect.
Thank you David. Often, simple is best.
