I love the leaves of plants and trees as much as I love flowers. They have so many shapes, textures, colors and fine details that make them all so unique. My father knew every tree on our big farm, and made it a point to teach us how to know all the trees by the shape of their leaves. Leaves have lots of stories to tell about the climate, the health of the tree or plant and the changes of season that are coming. Their most remarkable quality is the beautiful colors they radiate as they are in the process of dying.
