Adventure Man’s Leaves

As we left the bank, Adventure Man was distracted by the last of the autumn leaves on the drive. The leaves are beautiful on the trees, but Adventure Man can see their beauty even on the ground. (For the rest of us, they get messy and they are slippery.)

  2. I can’t stop looking at pics….and I can’t stop smiling.

    The melange of those colors truly is magical.

    I used to pay the street sweeper in Tehran NOT TO clear the leaves in front of our house away in Autumn. Poor dude used to get in trouble with my dad ;p

    I so wanna walk on those leaves now and hear them go ……

  3. ohhh Grandma and I walked back from Tully’s last fall, along (I’m guessing) the same street, and we found _such_ beautiful leaves. Lucky you to find such rich ones this late in the season!

  5. I’m with Adventure Man. This year I found some kind of maple tree that was shedding yellow leaves that were 10-12 inches across. I figure it was some PNW variety never seen on the east coast. Next year I want to get some before they are wet and shellac them and put them on the dining room table. I love the leaves until they become a sodden mess.

  6. The leaves are a little soggy and slippery now, and dangerous for my Mom, as beautiful as they are.

    Abdulaziz, if you could see all the Canadians shopping here right now, you would laugh!

  10. The Mexicans are crossing the borders, still, in droves, but looking for a better life and to be able to send money back to their family.
