Blissful leaves

Fall colors

Brightly colored fall leaves play an important role in our Thanksgiving table decorations, but our house is surrounded by pine trees. Pine needles totally fail to convey that "it's fall" feeling. So what's a person to do?

Well, at our house, we stock up with some old plastic grocery bags and scout the area for real fall trees. With the mostly mild weather we've had this autumn, the piles aren't quite as thick as usual, but this is one of those streets where we can always count on finding the full range of fall colors—red, orange, purple, yellow, and of course some green.

" Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree."
~Emily Bronte
