Until the end, these trees glow with radiant colors! Although the outer leaves have mostly fallen, the inner ones, the last ones to go, look like they’ve just changed colors and still appear lush and shiny. My hypothesis is that they’ve been protected from the elements by the outer leaves. But the leaf stems are weak and will fall with a slight touch or pull.
Thinking about it some more, maybe it’s the type of tree that makes this difference. The leaves are waxy. Just some thoughts from observing these trees with my kids.
Thanks Cee for hosting this challenge! Stay well and safe.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!
These are marvelous photos of autumn leaves. 😀 It seems like I could reach out and just touch them 😀
Thank you!! The leaves are really showing off their colors before winter.
Your eye for detail is excellent!
Thank you!! So happy you liked it. Your affirmative comments lift my spirit.
Hope you are having a good Sunday and staying well. 🙂

You’re welcome, and yes, I had a good Suday, despite it being busy. I trust that your week is off to a good start. 💙
I wish we were still at “the golden leaves phase” – they are long gone unfortunately. You stay well and safe too Esther.
