Fall has “fallen” and the leaves are mostly off the trees.
The rejuvenation process has begun.

A few of them make a nice picture, but I just finished mulching/composting 150 gal of the darn things
yesterday, now I can go back to enjoying them again. The maples, birch and aspens have lost most of their leaves, but the oak, apple and lilac are taking their time. Lolo peak has hip deep snow on it now, so I guess
winter is here again, the rejuvenation process has begun and spring can not be more than 8 months away.

and i’ve been begging for bags of leaves to put around my blueberries.
Didn’t find any donors, unfortunately.

Nothing “burns” me up more than seeing someone put a match to a big pile of leaves. I think its one of those things that people saw their parents do, so they think they should do it too. When you think about it, if you spot someone empty their ash tray at a traffic light and they have kids in the car….. those kids are going to do it too when they get older. That’s probably where they’ll get their smoking habit too. Just a thought or two.

you’re right—the phrase that I’ve used for years (hmm decades?) in my parenting programs:
Everything you say and do and don’t say and don’t do is a lesson…what are you teaching your children?

Here are two very confused trees – covered with both leaves and snow. I took these photos from inside the house on the morning of October 30.

This is a silver maple.

This is a heartnut, which is very similar to a butternut.

The leaves really hung on this year. Rick said that the trees would be in trouble if they didn’t fall before the snow hit. Poor trees – but beautiful photos

ChuckV, I hope you went out and shook those trees good after you took those pictures to get the worst
of the snow off the branches before it did too much damage, as long as you put the hood up on your
parka, you should not get too much snow down your neck. Mother nature does seem to have a little
bit of a cruel streak every now and then.

Amazingly, both of these trees survived without much damage. They are both very flexible. The “strong” trees, like the oaks, are the ones that really suffer in a situation like this.

One of the odd things about the heartnut is that in the Autumn, it sheds its leaves by dropping the entire fronds instead of the individual leaves. Most fronds have 11 leaves and they drop like little missiles. The entire tree will shed almost every frond in just one day.. This year that day was Nov 2. Other years it was Nov 5, Nov 8 and Nov 24.

Greg –
That is absolutely beautiful. As a woodworker would ask, what are the dimensions of that flower?
