I'm sorry this post is a bit late, friends. I've been busy-beeing with other things and let it slip my mind.
As the last of the leaves start to change on the trees and disappear, I try to hang on to as much of the outdoors as I can to get me through the next few months until it's Spring again.
This Fall I decorated with branches, leaves, and pine cones that we brought home from Colorado, and huge ones my parents brought me from their camping trip to Sequoia National Park this Summer.

My little leaves changed and dropped off the branches before I had a chance to photograph them. You can clip them early, fill vases with them and enjoy their beautiful leaves for a couple weeks before they drop. They don't last as long as the Spring time blooms, but they give a good show before they're gone.
