Macro Monday: Looking Down

I will admit…I have a thing for red leaves in the fall. Look what I spotted on a recent walk in the woods…proving once again that it always pays to look down!

I am often reminded of how fun it was to “preserve” (with a hot iron) fallen leaves between 2 pieces of wax paper a zillion years ago. I wonder if anyone still does that.

  1. Coincidentally, I’m working on a poem about the sad fate of autumn leaves — but I ended up remembering joyful crisp walks in the woods, paths filled with little pools of water in which pointy red and brown maple leaves lay, and how I would sing very loud to let hunters know i was not fair game
    and neither, I felt, were the gentle deer trying not to be seen.

      1. Oh yes. I think I was in Girl Scouts for two meetings. We met in a small building in the forest near my town in Nebraska. We didn’t go out into the forest AT ALL. Just sat around in the lodge on our little pads. Far more ladylike and sanitary than the forest, though.

      2. I grew restless in Girl Scouts. The only time we had outside activities was at camp in the summer or on a field trip. Acting ladylike was never my strong point (much to my mother’s eternal disappointment).
