The purple is an unusual colour to find in the leaf litter.

Nature's confetti. Beautiful. And such a different palette from the one we have on the ground in Vermont.

JM said...

@Joan Elizabeth: It's purple Bougainvillaea.

I'm used to seeing those bougainvillea flowers on the ground, but I don't get to see them mixed with fall leaves very often.

Babzy said...

Halcyon said...

A fantastic array of leaves. I love the mix of colors!

I can tell we aren't in North Carolina because of the purple! What an autumn delight!

Leif Hagen said...

Way too beautiful to step on! Hope you walked around those leaves, Jose'!

Such pretty colors. I just love leaves on the ground. I leave mine for a long time just so I can enjoy them. MB

Wow! I am bookmarking this one so I can see it again and again. I love the bouganville (right?) in the melange of autumn leaves. Wonderfully discovered and beautifully captured!

Bon weekend,

Très coloré l'automne chez toi ! C'est beau ...

VP said...

I am quite envious that these colors are almost impossible to find here. Excellent image.

This is stunning JM! I like the different fall colors here instead of the usual yellows and oranges.
Your comment made me laugh. It's funny how you can "get to know someone" through blogging, the idea went through my head that you'd be intrigued by the arts festival when I posted it.

Joanne said...

Que lindo!!! As cores são demais:)

joo said...

Autumn is so beautiful!

Jarart said...

Beautiful nature photo!

Jacob said...

A rainbow of leaves! Seldom seen in most places. Fine photo with great detail. I can imagine these colors on an artist's palette.

Randy said...

What intense color. You can't help but smile.

J Bar said...

So colourful. Magnificent.

Francisca said...

VP is right... every place has its own unique colors. I'm so glad to see yours.

Gunn said...

I love this image with the beautiful colors!:)

Ooh, missed this one somehow - I'd like that printed on to fabric for a dress.

Irina said...

So beautifully and so differently from our yellow-orange-reds.
