Let me tell you about a recent walk to a nearby park. Leaf fall is beautiful! Pictures of late autumn have inspired artists and poets for thousands of years. It is impossible to remain indifferent when looking at the passing autumn. This is the off-season. Still golden autumn, not yet snow-white winter. There are landscapes beyond time, beyond geography.

So my husband and I ventured into the park to contemplate the passing autumn. Our walk with was calm and measured.

I collected leaves and found a few mushrooms.

A tree with thorns caught my attention. Many of you probably know what kind of tree it is.

The tree genus is named after Johann Gottlieb Gleditsch (1714-1786), German physician and botanist, director of the Berlin Botanical Garden.

Gleditsch is known as thorny locust or thorny gleditsch.

I was impressed by these thorns. This year the thorns grew very long.

I love when paths in forests and parks are coated with warm fall colors like in your first shot

Not so much when it’s my lawns just got back in from two hours cleaning them up

That thorny tree is interesting wouldn’t want to bump into the thorns

Thanks for joining Wednesday Walk :), I truly enjoy exploring the world virtually each Wednesday seeing walks from all around the globe and feeling I am there and experiencing it all myself, such as I did in your post just now :)

The warm fall colors of the leaves adorn parks and forests. 🍂 🍁
I was afraid of those thorns when I photographed them.😳 I was careful not to let them catch me.
