Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

The theme of this week’s WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge is MAGIC.

The changing of the colors in the woods behind my garden from green to yellow and orange and red is indeed magic. In my head I know it is the action of plant chemistry, but in my heart I am still fascinated by the magic of the garden each fall.

  3. I completely agree! Even after knowing the scientific reason for the changing of colours, I like to believe it’s one of the few magical touches of life.

    Great minds…. Thanks for visiting.


  5. I, too, agree, John. The science of the seasons does nothing to lessen their magic.

  6. I’m in complete agreement. It’s as if the trees hold a secret all summer, only revealing it in autumn. What a wonderful season!

    I agree even if your head tells you how it happens the change of colour in autumn is indeed magic. A time of the year I love
