Fridays in the fall are perfect for a field trip/nature walk to the Arboretum.
The Arb has gourds and pumpkins a-plenty, much to the delight of my own little pumpkin.
But best of all, the Arb has leaves. Fiery red, golden yellow, orange, green and brown — they are glorious!
My oldest loved how the raindrops gathered on this leaf to make it shimmer.
Then she saw this leaf, which was more colorful and shimmered, too.
My little pumpkin thought for sure a fairy had taken a bath in this oak leaf and had forgotten to drain the water.
Thank You, Lord, for the glorious leaves!
And happy leaf-looking, everybody!
