Another Leaf or Two

December first- I got in my daughter’s car and found another Leaf on the windshield today.

I took a photo of it and said “ another leaf but with blue sky today.”

When we got where we were going (Worthington OH) Charlie (4) said

“I’ve got a Leaf on my window. I want to take a picture.”

I handed back the phone and he took the second photo.

Silent Sunday

A carpet of golden ginkgo leaves under the bare branches.  At the park. One day the Ginkgo trees are golden and their fan shaped leaves are blowing in the wind.  Then it got very cold last night and they dropped off onto the ground.

 

The Tulip Tree Out Front

The Tulip Tree out front was slow to change color this year. Liriodendron is in the Magnolia family

l’m told they grow up to sixty feet tall, which I probably won’t see, but it’s a lovely tree.

I lost my 90+ year old Sycamore in 2002. I’d gotten a second opinion that it had to be taken down. a living thing that had come to the end of its life.  I filled out a request for a new tree  and the city planted this one.

It’s growing straight up it seems to me.  The sky was blue today and made a perfect backdrop for the changing leaves.

Lovely shaped leaves two weeks ago.
