Hanging on


I believe this is a grape leaf although I can't be sure.  It was really a deep wine-red color but the sun was shining through it and made it glow this brilliant fire-engine red.

Wow that's a pretty red leaf. Nicely shot though.

Any thing left on our trees has been pummeled off by the rain we have had

It's a beautiful shade and lovely form. Vies with Chihuly's shapes!

A little treasure, overlooked by many, I would guess. Nice!

Judy is right...
This leaf is still celebrating the Holiday.

Desperate cry for help... or at least your camera?

Looks like a grape plant. When we lived in Scottsdale (not much to Scottsdale in those days) there was a vineyard near Camelback Rd I think ... but we could pick our own grapes for 5 cents a pound or have them bagged for 10 cents a pound. They were sooooo good!

It's so nice to see something colourful - our world is so grey at this time of year, Sharon!

I can't imagine a redder red than this. Wonderful, Sharon.

I can't believe you still have leaves.
