I enjoyed sharing some thoughts about creating a native woodland garden with a class this morning; this was one of the "slides" that was part of my presentation, showing leaf collections from years past.
I love the leaf depot image -- bagged leaves on the old coal road, ready for spreading!
Here was today's haul, probably just the first of many for this fall - my gardening companion can't pass up the bagged leaves in our neighborhood ready for pickup. Fall has come later this year than usual, in an odd way -- with glorious fall color now in the first weekend of November, with leaves falling on a delayed schedule.
They have already been spread down the slope in the ravine forest!
