Too many beautiful leaves too little time!


The other day I was walking in a rain-soaked park. I took a video and when I played it back, the rain sounded so loud and drumming and crackling on my umbrella. It felt so incredibly calming.


I picked up a vine maple leaf and took it home.
And I took an hour to paint it in my nature journal.




The sun came out for two seconds together and I went out into the garden.


And picked up some of the bronze beech leaves. They’re next.


What is everybody doing with all these glorious leaves? Pressing them, drawing them? making leaf garlands and wreaths? Tell me, show me. 😀

    Gorgeous painting! We only have oaks in our yard, and they have these tiny little leaves that are just turning brown and falling into piles. I might have to go adventuring to find some real fall leaves.
