Devil in the Details

Sometimes it is easy to miss the cool little stuff when you’re surrounded by beauty.  Then it hits you in the face, literally.

I walked right into the branch because I was looking the other way, so when I turned back to see what I had I run into I about fell over in delight at seeing what must be the tiniest pinecones ever.  They’re about the size of a pencil eraser.  Thankfully this happened pretty early in my visit to Anderson gardens so it made me more aware of the little things around me.  Like this lonely little berry;

And these two colorful leaves hanging out with the remnants of summer ferns…

Still, I very nearly missed this last little bloom hiding in the depths of a bush.

 

However there was no way I was going to miss out on these awesome red and orange leaves!
