One perfect bright red leaf

Found this maple leaf on my way to the mailbox and just had to scan it!  Enjoy -- and, if you like, feel free to save the image to use in crafting or whatever. 

Foliage season is barely started here; just a colorful tree here and there.  Even way up north where we were last weekend, the foliage was far from peak.

I'll leave you with a multicolored leaf, this one also found today.  It's not as perfect, but I love the combination of colors and the yellow veins.  Enjoy!


  1. Very little color here either...a little more in the low-lying swampy areas. Beautiful leaf and healthy, signs of disease. The multi-colored ones are so interesting. I always call such trees mustard, ketchup, and relish trees. Not too dear a description...perhaps confetti tree would be better.

    1. Hi Vee!

      Thanks for the foliage report from your corner! This morning while out and about I noticed that the trees are becoming a bit more colorful here.

      I always enjoy the multicolored leaves too. Like your way of describing them. Guess confetti would be a prettier term, as you say. As a child viewing the autumn hillsides from the windows of a school bus, I always saw them as multicolored candies. Not sure why.

      Back to work -- just taking a breather after killing a mouse with a broom! A first for me ... gets the heart rate up. I wasn't about to spend the rest of the day wondering where in my kitchen he was going to appear next#

    1. Isn't it, Arlene? I love seeing God's handiwork in the autumn leaves. Never tire of seeing them!
