A few weeks ago we drove through Colorado and had seen all the aspens changing a beautiful golden yellow. I have been sort of disappointed since then noticing that very few trees here in Denver have begun to change colors. I guess it just hasn’t been cold enough.
Anyways, I wanted to have some fall colors around our place but I really didn’t want to go buy some fake leaves at the store.
1) They aren’t as good as the real thing.
2) They just look fake.
3) If I don’t have to spend $$ I don’t want to.
So, Marie and I went for a walk today to see if we could find some festive fall leaves and, to my surprise, we did!
I was a little hesitant to just walk around our neighborhood, imagining some home owner running out his front door yelling at me for pulling branches off his trees. Luckily, we have a nice path that runs through a park across the street and then follows a city drainage way. I kept to the path thinking whatever I could find along the path would be city land and not private property.
We found lots of beautiful leaves and even some berries!
These were some of my favorites, I just love the multiple colors on one leaf!
