Leaf carpet

There is no question that the autumnal coloring of trees is a sight to be enjoyed, but what is sometimes also spectacular is the resulting carpeting of the turf around the trunk. When you consider the volume of the tree limb ball you realize that once it is compressed to the essentially flat surface below, the layer of leaves can become more dense than the tree ever was. And that results in a thick carpet, assuming there is not a lot of wind or an enthusiastic homeowner with rake in hand.


  1. The color is out there we just need the sun to cooperate.

  2. Today was a perfect day for photos like this. Our birch tress have very small leaves that I just mow over but I have to admit that the leaves look pretty on the ground.
