A quick thank you to everyone who stopped by yesterday's post. Your comments really made my day.
The boys and I played in the leaves this wandery weekend and tinkered with a little land art. While the leaves on our trees have mostly fallen or turned brown, color still abounds closer to the forest floor. The raspberry bushes have remarkable colors right now so we decided to grab an armful of them and explore.
We arranged our leaves in a gradient of color, running from red to green, along a large downed pine. There were many tiny thorns to deal with so momma got this job. The boys placed stones where each leaf overlapped.
After dinner the wind had died down a bit so we went back out to remove the stones and free the leaves to change with the forces of nature.
Oh look, here comes a force of nature now...
This was all that remained after hurricane E blew through.
I guess she thought our work could be improved upon because after she cleared ours off, she began work on her own. (she's opting for a more monochromatic arrangement)
Have you played in the leaves lately?
