Fall in Love

DSCF3257-001
Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year and the color display in Michigan is breath taking, so as a little project for myself I’m going to create the mini-series “Fall in Love.” For the next week I’ll share pictures of Autumn from the past and present.
 
Today’s pictures are of our walk last weekend with our dog (Bear) at Leila Arboretum, in Battle Creek, Michigan.

I was hypnotized by all the colors in the sky.

Had it not been for my boyfriend, whom pointed at the ground, I would have missed these goldie-locks at my feet.

I rearranged them a bit with a smile across my face, and told him “this is for you.” ~ ❤

Activity: Hearts in Nature/ Creating Your Own

Step #1

Go outside and see if you can find naturally formed hearts (either rocks, leaves, anything that seems to jump out at you) and write down the objects that looked like hearts.

Step #2

Create your own heart in nature, an example is below (Please use only what you find outside to create your art piece or materials that will not hurt the environment).

Step #3

In either writing or with a photo share what hearts you have seen out in nature and what you experienced when creating your own heart outside. Share your comments either with a link to your picture or about your experience doing this activity. For more information/prizes click HERE.

Leaves that fall,

For something more,

Upon the floor.

A heart you say?

Okay lets play.

I’m helping inspire, for our “Give Love” desire. 😉

Morning Hearts

The bright greens and yellows of Nature’s hearts give off an intensity of wakefulness. And although my heart art have little color, the lighter tones in the others give me a sense of calm. All in all the morning was filled with dynamism and stillness, the perfect morning blend. ^_^
