Joseph’s Coat

We had a wonderful autumn season and I did several walks up our street on fine days to take photos of beautiful foliage. These are from a walk on 06 May. My title refers to the biblical ‘coat of many colours’ that Jacob bestowed on his favourite son Joseph. The range of colours displayed in these leaves made me think of the coat!

  1. I love all of the variations in brilliant colors in the autumn leaves as the reds and yellows and oranges mix together, often on individual leaves. As others have pointed out, the blue sky is wonderful. We are in a period where the weather is hazy, hot, and humid, which is perfect for dragonflies, but not necessarily for humans.

    1. A beautiful clear blue sky is such a blessing and we seem more likely to get them in autumn. When I lived in the North of NZ the sky was pretty much always cloudy and when we visited the UK I was amazed at the clear blue skies that we saw there in summer. I didn’t realise back then that the South of NZ also gets to enjoy beautiful clear blue skies 🙂


  2. I do love autumn and its colors; these are beautiful. We’re in the height of our green season right now. Spring flowers are fading or are gone, and some of the autumn flowers are just developing. It’s fun to see these, and think about cooler days.
