Flower of the day: December 08, 2020

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.

FOTD: November 10, 2020

In a matter of days, leaves have turned into a fiery red color like the sunset. I’m afraid all will drop off after they’ve enchanted us with their vibrant colors.

Flower of the day: October 6, 2020. Autumn leaves

All these colorful leaves will soon flutter to the ground. It happens too quickly and when the wind picks up, more will drift to the ground. But they are beautiful in displaying their vibrant warm colors before they say their final farewells to this season.

Thanks Cee for hosting this FOTD challenge! Stay well and have a great start to the weekend.https://wordpress.com/read/blogs/59080076/posts/48778
