King Autumn has started to paint the leaves at the Eisenbach
and in the neighborhood

 In the wonderful sunlight I take pictures of different shapes and

 similar struktures... doesn't matter in which size

 I love lime trees. 
Now, when its leaves turns golden and in springtime when I can't wait for its bloom and scent. 

If coming closer and closer

  and closer to a single leave one can find a really wonderful construction of elements from epidermis, mesophyll and vascular tissue.

So my water colour showes a cross-section of a foliage leave under microscope.

Our host Sabine, Miss Herzfrisch 
has taken a rake and you can find more leaves at her blog.
Have a colourful weekend!

Sabine, Miss Herzfrisch, is our host for this weekend's dc No 80, October the 20th and 21st with LEAVES

For the weekend at the 27th and 28th of October Norma is our host.

  3. Hi Rose.
    I enjoyed your post, I also love the lime tree, the scent of its flowers gives me peace.

  4. Beautiful delicate nature, Ariane! You speak it to us with your brush and delicate touch. This is really lovely. I can only imagine the smell of the lime trees. I can imagine how magnificent the tree will be when completely bare, its' branches dancing in snowfall. Hugs, Norma, x

  5. nice!
    I love the connection between the shapes of leaves and trees and the dappling against the decaying leaf. You have a great eye for these sorts of detail Ariane. Its what makes your posts so interesting.

    Helen :)

  6. Your microscope watercolor view is so delicate. Lovely photos. Happy week to you, sus

  7. the build up explains the pretty watery watercolour picture! this is a pattern... for wallpaper, perhaps?
    i am amazed as well, at the ochre leaf #8, in which i see a whole wood of leaves, but your images follow-up is inviting us to see that! well done, and nature is so clever, everything is in everything...
    your last image again, is poetry in residence.

  8. wunderschöner herbst in hamburg! ich mag besonders das letzte foto: ein gemälde!
    dir weiterhin buntes blätterrascheln am eisenbach! :-) mano

  9. your lime tree takes me back to my childhood, there was a very old, magnificent lime tree in our playground , we had fun with the limeblossoms twirling to the ground and it's scent still takes me there.
    you show so beautiful how 'the big' is already in 'the small', how abstraction relates with reality,
    your watercolour is lovely, x

  10. Liebste Ariane, das ist mal wieder ein Feuerwerk an Farben, Sinneseindrücken und Versprechungen - ganz wunderbar. Und die wissenschaftlichen Abstraktionen passen perfekt zu meinen Nano-Bildern.
    Liebe Grüße bis bald

  11. Liebe Ariane,
    du hast so schöne Augenblicke eingefangen. I mag besonders die Struktuenvergleiche und dein Mikroskop Aquarell.
    Schön das du dabei warst.
    Herzliche Grüße

  12. beautiful!! Such a magnificent post of leaves..and life..and nature and art! I have a deep affinity for leaves so i enjoyed this post deeply!

  13. Wunderschöne Herbstaufnahmen, poetischer als jedes Gedicht.
    Erstaunlich, die Nähe von Baumform zu Blatt, das ist mir noch nei aufgefallen. Ein ganz besonderes Auge hast Du.

    Herzlich, Katja
