My eldest knew I was in mourning for fall. What I miss most is the dramatic shifts in color, like this:
So, she went all around her new area in Illinois and snapped photos and collected leaves for me.
That jar is full of leaves. She said there’s also a spider in there, but she could never capture it. So, when/if we get the house, I think I’ll use this as my first Illinois mulch and hopefully the spider will have a happy surprise. If it’s alive that is.
Best present I’ve gotten in a long time. I love her.
