I recently discovered the monthly garden photography contest at Garden Gone Wild. It's fun to look through all the entries. So much talent out there! When I heard the topic was "End of the Line", I thought of this picture I took recently when at the Roper Mountain fall festival.
But if I stare at the photograph long enough, I realize it's not really the end of the line, it's a new beginning as the leaves are broken down and provide nurishment for new life.
