Usually if I take pictures of flowers in the UT Gardens in Knoxville, Tennessee, it’s during spring when redbuds and dogwoods and tulips burst forth. But since Amy has given us this challenge — A Photo Walk — in the fall, let’s see what the gardens have to offer.
Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.F. Scott Fitzgerald
It begins with the UT Color Garden — all in autumn tones — leading me down a path bordered with mighty color, showing off before winter.
A patchwork quilt of sorts emerges as individual flowers vie for attention.
In the heart of the gardens, an old truck faces the almost-blinding morning sun, but cares little. After all, you can stand anything surrounded by grasses and leaves and blooms reaching skyward.
A seat would be nice. Perhaps in the vegetable garden?
Or maybe I should push on ’til I reach the furthest boundary — a great vantage point from which to say good-bye.
I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.L. M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

And then . . . go for a walk. It’s fall ya’ll!
