I'm leaving...

...but in a good way.  In the fall, the two maple trees in the front yard keep us 'leaving' until well into November.


  They are each well over a thousand feet tall (or at least drop leaves as though they are) 


They cover the lawn,

 
and the car,

and require constant raking



and bagging.


It's one of our major signals that fall has fully arrived.


They fill our yard with colour and richness, provide pressed leaves for mixed media fodder, and are a strong antidote to the thought of cooler weather to follow.

What is your major autumn signal?  How does your colour grow?
