Autumn is such a beautiful season of the year.
I have always enjoyed watching the changing colors of leaves during Fall. From one day to the next the same leaf can undergo major changes. If it remains on the tree long enough, it can go from green to red or gold to orange or brown. There are lots of hues with each color and each leaf can have many colors at the same time.
The life of a leaf can be interesting. Not many of us have ever paid much attention to leaves. We just expect them to grow, blow in the wind and die in the Fall, falling to the ground for us to rake up.
This is a Big Tooth Maple leaf. I love all the different colors on this one. The veins are so large you can imagine life running through them. But now, it's time for this one to become fertilizer and nourish the earth. Nature recycling itself. The wonder of life.
We get to observe all this if we just slow down and take the time. Many things are happening around us all the time but we often miss the important things in life because we are moving too fast and talking too much. Find your leaf today!
