The Life in My Years

An anthology of life

This week’s CFFC photo challenge is a special request topic Wilting, dead or aging flowers and leaves. This is a great topic because not having a whole lot in the archives I was inspired to take camera in hand and go on a search.  To view Cee’s photos and to find links to other contributors click on the link.

The archive cupboard wasn’t entirely bare as I found some autumn photos taken in the Napa Valley, including the featured photo of an autumn leaf.

And finally a post wouldn’t be complete if I couldn’t add my Lexi.  At one and a half years old in the autumn leaves.
