Mape Leaf

I was at a home inspection Saturday evening in Poughkeepsie NY and the homeowner was outside raking.  I went outside to ask a question and suddenly noticed how beautiful the leaves were.  The Maple leaves were the largest I have seen so I picked up a few.  In the frame above is a Maple Leaf I gathered.

If you read my blog you know that I find delight in the small things.  Yes, even the leaves are wonderfully made and this Maple Leaf is no exception.
