That is just beautiful. I would hate to have to rake it but it sure is pretty. :)

Tricia said...

Oh that IS pretty, looks like GOD himself has rolled out a red carpet especially for you! You lucky girl!

quilly said...

Red & pink leaves! How incredible. What kind of tree is that? Can I plant one in Washington State?

Tom said...

What a great sight you have found for ruby Tuesday... this really is a nice capture.

Ralph said...

This looks like a patterned Berber carpet. The weave of ruby and tan leaves is stunning. A autumnal carpet that leaves us a path to nature. Excellent!

DrillerAA09 said...

Outstanding capture. The variety of color is wonderful. Happy RT.

Carolyn Ford said...

How about an ornery little fella for Ruby Tuesday?

Fantastic photo, lovley fall colors.

Gel said...

Absolutely delish! Great depth. We don't get those lovely reds here.
P.S. For Halloween afternoon, an old buck, stopped by my patio window. I was amazed since I just saw yours playing in a few great shots. Well, I see many doe but have seen one buck in all the time living here. I tried to outsmart him, ran out the front door to try to photo him off the side of our house. He stared at me as I enjoyed those antlers but as soon as I raised my camera (since I did not have a zoom lens on it), I was too close and he "bucked" off into the forest. So I have a blurry shot of his butt, but a fantastic memory of his face. How I wanted those antlers photographed! :D

Mimi said...

Oh how beautiful!
Looks like someone scattered a carpet of red rose petals for a bride to walk on.

Paz said...

I love the carpet.

I like fresh-fallen leaves - I think I can hear them crunch under my feet as I walk beneath that tree. ;-)

Patti said...

So many pretty leaves, to walk through and enjoy, or to rake up (not!)

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Carletta!

Marice said...

Leora said...

It feels like one could reach out and touch all those leaves, then throw them all up in the air!

moosh said...

What lovely red leaves. We only got brown ones this year. HRT

Dianne said...

Becky and Gary said...

Don't you just love a yard full of nutty smelling leaves. We got most of ours picked up today. Good thing, more rain coming!

It is so nice to see leaves that aren't in some pile waiting for the trash..Love the frame too Carletta.. Michelle

SquirrelQueen said...

Beautiful, it looks as though the tree was planted in the middle of a lovely carpet. Great shot Carletta.

Carletta-Sooo pretty-

Gattina said...

As a carpet it looks very nice ! as dead leaves not, lol !

Felisol said...

A beautiful carpet, God's own Autumn display.
I like to walk on fallen leaves, the smell of nature, trees fertilizing their own soil.
Oh, how wisely it all is made.
Not a death, but a prolonged life in beauty.

De Lly Dilettante said...

This photo is really lovely. Thanks for sharing :)

The Cunning Runt said...

I love the tactile nature of walking in the Autumn woods - the sound, the smells, the feel of the leaves under foot.

Beautiful!

Hootin' Anni said...

Wow....just plain wow!!! Dazzling.

My R T is posted now. "I came, HE SAWED, we conquered". come see. Here is the permalink to my Tuesday post.

Judy said...

It does look like a carpet, with the different shades, resulting from the backs and fronts of the leaves, scattered throughout!!! One of the major joys of autumn!!

Icy BC said...

Absolutely beautiful with a carpet of all red leaves..

Loree said...

Oh my gosh how beautiful. It almost doesn't seem real.

Robin said...

How beautiful, a real nature's carpet.

storyteller at Small Reflections said...

Hugs and blessings,

Nicole said...

Beautiful shot!
Makes me wanna get out and run around there!

kaye said...

that looks like the middle of fairy world--so magical, I expect to see a unicorn prancing through.

moorebloglife said...

So pretty I could stay there all day...

ellen b. said...

Oh Carletta! That is one beautiful carpet you found to photograph. I love it!! Happy Ruby to you and happy November...

George said...

This looks like our back yard! You've got more color in the leaves than we do, however.

Gretchen said...

Beautiful!

Grace and Bradley said...

I love your wisteria shot the the Fall leaves on the ground. Thanks for sharing.

Leedra said...

The red carpet is very pretty. I mostly see a mix, and now all red like this. Nice.

Jim said...

Wouldn't you hate to be the one that had to sweep all those leaves up! They are very pretty. You reminded me of a horror story in my earlier life, about sweeping leaves. I got out of it okay.

Happy RT! It has been a while since I visited your WVa site. I am still way behind and now my Birthday Holiday set me back so I can't recover in comments due.
