First Fall Leaf

When the acorns from the oak trees around our house start crashing onto the deck in mid-August, I know autumn is on its way. This morning when I looked out the window there was one (and only one) orange leaf on the vine maple in my garden, another harbinger of fall.

I had a lull in my work schedule today and decided to see if I could capture that first leaf. As usual, it was more difficult than I expected and the color bears little resemblance to the leaf in the photo. Still, I enjoyed the attempt. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow...

Lovely pics from your garden and your leaf is truly me it seems as though you've done it with such the color...I'm alwasy a little sad when those first leaeves start to fall, just until I'm used to the idea of a new season arriving...
I'm actually more saddened by what is going on in our world...referring to your previous post. It is a scary thing having fewer and fewer people reading!
I'm sending you an email tomorrow..
