Travel theme: Foliage

It’s getting all autumnal up here in the northern hemisphere, while down in the southern hemisphere everyone’s looking forward to spring. Whichever hemisphere you inhabit, now is a fantastic time to get out and have a look at what the trees are doing. Whether they’re about to burst into life with fresh green growth, or starting to adorn themselves in their autumn glory; even if they’re still wearing their evergreen needles, it’s a wonderful time to go leaf peeping. Here are a few photos I’ve taken that let foliage take centre stage.

The leafy entrance to the Moongate Garden; part of the Edith B. Haupt Gardens in Washington DC.

Bird-filled branches in Snug Harbor on New York’s Staten Island.

Leafy trees casting long shadows as the sun sets over the hills of northern California.

And last, but not least, a lovely array of leaves peeping over a wall in Antigua, Guatemala.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.

      Ooh, all lovely shots, LubbyGirl, but that last one of the grapes is fabulous! xxx

      • LubbyGirl says:

        Those grapes were interesting…just on the verge of total demise, but still had some sweetness left. I was a good girl, though, and didn’t pick them, since I wasn’t invited by the owner to help myself. 🙂

    Very well chosen theme this week and some beautiful shots indeed – one could say that foliage are the dot of the letter I – one would really miss it if it missing – okay we have to miss it during winter in some cases, but there we knows it come again… 🙂

    I can’t upload image on my WP blog just now, don’t know that’s wrong, but as soon as I can then I’ll follow up on your excellent theme with a post on my blog… 🙂

      Awesome, Shaanthz, the squirrel in the top photo is too cute for words!

      • Shaanthz says:

        Thanks Ailsa. Actually I was walking down the path nibbling on cherries and this guy popped up in front of me…I threw him a cherry and off he went with it and then looked at me as if to say “Catch me if you can!” I thought he was funny…who knew squirrels could be funny 🙂
