Got leaves?

September 30, 2010 | My Jottings

Our daughter Sara came by a couple of days ago and I saw her strolling around in the front yard while talking on her cell phone. The next thing I knew she was standing at the kitchen sink filling a square vase with a little water. Then she began to quickly and deftly arrange a few leaves and bits of nature she had gathered from outside. It took her about five minutes, and when she was satisfied with her fall creation, she put it on a console table we have in our living room.

Isn’t it lovely? I wish I could think of things like that.

When I went grocery shopping yesterday I took my camera with me to take a few pictures of things around our house, and of the neon trees in our neighborhood. A couple of people saw me stop my car and photograph their trees and I could see the suspicion puzzlement in their eyes. 🙂

Got leaves? Got apples? Got flowers? Got weeds? Maybe you can make a gathering of autumn’s beauty from things you find outside too. If you do, please send a photo and I’ll post it on the blog!

How do you decorate for fall? What things do you bring into your home to highlight the season?

    Er… mud?

  2. Just Julie says:

    Yes, we have plenty of that too, Ember. Notice I took no pictures of the floors or the Schnauzers paws. 🙂

    Leetle Bub-bah is a genius and I would talk sharply to anyone who would disagree! I love the eye candy of fall…pictures to follow…it’s dark right now… : )
