Holdout

Hand in hand

Figuring things out on a several fronts of late. Another round of tests at hospital with mom. Sis in town still. She’s a rock. The colors of autumn have been so lovely this year. Fiddling with aspect ratios. Tackling lists. Savoring moments. Closed out the day making soup.

If it seems like I go to a grocery store every other day? I probably do. Then again, I was up getting my car serviced and when you’re that close to Jungle Jim’s, you go. (Previously, when I processed photos too gloomy.)

Strong winds

The trees outside the laundry room were a vibrant yellow, holding on to their leaves and providing a nice backdrop to the smells of fabric softener. But alas, the past few days have been filled with pretty darn strong winds. Though sometimes annoying, I figure it’s nature way of leaf blowing. Or something.

Xanthophylls

Thing I learned on the internet this morning: Though the yellow color is present in the leaf throughout the growing season, chlorophyll masks the pigments known as xanthophylls. This hue becomes visible when the green chlorophyll is gone.
