Shirl By: Shirl

The maple path at Arboretum was just perfect yesterday. Enough leaves were still on the tree to please the eyes, yet there was a dense carpet beneath my feet.


Don't you just love the scruff scruff rustle rustle when you walk through leaves?


Taken in Lansing, Michigan, October 25, 2006
