Autumn Leaves

Friday at the art gallery I saw a garland someone made from rolled brown leaves that was used in a display of art glass objects. I thought it was a neat idea so Saturday I collected some leaves and made one of my own that I will use in an arrangement of gourds and stuff. This is 37″ long.

Kansas doesn’t have the prettiest of fall colors. The darker ones are Virginia Creeper, I think and the lighter ones are Wahoo. I also picked up a couple of cottonwood leaves which are yellow and have more substance. I may collect more of those as they are drying to a nice gold color. Even the brown though, was very attractive!

It is raining today!  That is very GOOD news here!!
