This is a topic where I am spoilt for choice as I studied a local wood throughout 2007. However it wasn't the leaves I was interested in when I took this shot in Michigan,
|A Chipmunk amongst the leaves.|
Currently I am taking part in the 2013 A-Z Challenge and there will be shots of leaves under letters yet to come - 'Q' and 'S'. You can look out for them on 19 and 22 April.
Then I have three shots that tie in nicely with an Emily Bronte poem:
|Fallen Horse Chestnut Leaves (and some litter)|
Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day.
|Small Crab Apples among the fallen Leaves|
Finally before I take my leave:
But before you leave as well please take a look what others have swept up at Carmi's Thematic-photographic-239.
