My asian pear tree has had the most beautiful fall leaves this year so I'm playing with my scanner to preserve the colors....

Anyone else with colorful leaves to share?

You start some of the best threads, Judith!

Perhaps not typical leaves, but these were some sights around here in October.

Thanks Jocelyn and Travis...beautiful photos!

Fall was colorful here for a change and the Buffalo River trails beautiful. 

These are all from those trails except for the virginia creeper...it was along our  (almost) daily three mile walk out of town.

I need to figure out how to get pictures I took on my phone off of it.  Leaves this year have been amazing.

Here is a picture of leaves I collected for a zone 1 garden I want to start next year.

I am not sure which looks more delicious: that third crop of hay or the lamb:

Sonja said they were leaves she collected for zone one...not necessarily growing there

Yup, Judith is right.  They were collected and moved.  :)

That is beautiful! It would make a fantastic painting.
 
What's that smell? I think this tiny ad may have stepped in something.
