Skeleton fingers of Autumn

"Just before the death of leaves,
And before they are buried in snow,
There comes a festival season
When nature is all aglow."

    Allas, I do not know the species of tree I have captured here. My guess is that it is an english oak, very easily spotted around were I live due to their frequency in footprint. I will know in the summer, when leaves yet again bloom and nature glows again in brightest green.

    Still, I like the sadly coloured, burried hope in a buds essence.
    Due to my life being very busy, I am not spotted very frequently here, but out of sight is certainly not out of mind! Love you guys/girls;)
