R has a lovely photo he called “Yellow Leaf.” His is better; it was taken in our back yard in Kansas. This one is almost too pristine; she looks like she’s posing. However, I enjoy her regal demeanor and her slightly saucy attitude. There are a zillion leaves on the sidewalk, somewhat surprising to me as it doesn’t get that cold here. But the days do indeed get shorter, in terms of sunlight, so the foliage is taking its cue.
