We had a lot of wind last night, and so once again the ground is covered in leaves, mostly maple from the huge tree I've photographed above, mixed in with various others from our backyard greenbelt. Piles and piles of them in hues of yellow, russet, green and orange. Unfortunately, we don't have a lot of bright red color, as oak trees are not very common here in the Pacific Northwest.
Seeing this sight makes me stare in awe at the symphony of color around me, while others make a mad dash for their rakes! You can see that Fall color is my inspiration in the few pieces of jewelry I've scattered throughout my collage. Thankfully, my husband is the one who is inspired to grab the rake!
