A Skirt of Leaves
Today was a mighty fine day, a mighty fine day indeed. We awoke to S U N S H I N E! Such a welcome surprise after last night's windy, pouring down, misty rainy action.
Naturally, the walking shoes went on and out we went. I only had to step out of our front door to capture this blog's pictures.
Last night's wind meant that many of the leaves on trees had fallen in perfect patterns right below the trees they had fallen from. Wrapped at the base, just as if you'd wrapped the base of your Christmas Tree, a skirt of leaves. Nature's last stand before the trees are "naked" as one of our Granddaughter says.
