As I follow the Sunshine sweeping through my yard it lingers on yet another leaf. The little wild crab apple that just popped up on the edge of the creek a few years ago. This one was planted by the hand of God. I only allowed it to stay. Last Spring I was rewarded with a single bloom but in time there will be more. My eyes came to rest on the single tri-colored leaf standing out like a hand presenting a gift. I have noticed that the forest has retained more leaves this year than in the past.
By the end of September I was convinced that this Fall would be dull and brown but the colors have been vibrant and in unexpected combinations. Even a Bradford Pear ( I think it’s a Bradford Pear ) fifty miles away was showing multiple colors on one leaf.
However, the amount of leaves that are on the ground increases every day. The forest will soon sleep and renew it’s strength for the burst new life in just a few short months. For now though, we have the warm colors of the last few lingering leaves that warm the spirit.
