Autumn lines

I’m looking for lines.  Most obviously, they call to mind buildings, railways, pavements, washing lines, power lines: man-made kinds of things.  But Mother Nature does lines too, as we observed yesterday at Harlow Carr Gardens in Harrogate.  Lines of still-summery oak leaves edged against the sky.  Veins, dark against the now-glowing colours of the leaves.  A  tree trunk  reflected into the water as one long sinuous line.

So Becky, here are some more lines for your October Challenge: Lines and Squares.

      1. Awww thank you. I love the blogging community, and the occasional pop in is just fine…most squarers start that way and then by the 3rd quarter quite a few find themselves sharing daily!!

  1. Is it my imagination or are leaves turning a bit later this year? Those acers are certainly looking beautiful, but still there appears to be plenty of green leaves on the tree reflected in the water.

  2. This is a garden I have yet to explore. I keep seeing pictures of it on other blogs and it does look interesting. Then again most of the big RHS gardens are. I really miss my regular visits to Wisley even though we moved away from that area 8 years ago. In the west of Cornwall we don’t see too much in the way of autumn colour so it is nice to see your lovely photos with the natural lines.

      1. In the west there are few trees, there is a small woodland near us with native trees which don’t have much colour other than yellow and brown! I think you need gardens with the big American trees and maples or the Japanese acers to get those lovely red and orange colours.
