Seriously, one of the best presents ever

My eldest knew I was in mourning for fall. What I miss most is the dramatic shifts in color, like this:

Estes Park in September


So, she went all around her new area in Illinois and snapped photos and collected leaves for me.

jar of fall leaves

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.
