Purdy. (Did you intend to make me feel guilty? I didn't rake the sycamore leaves in my yard this weekend. I just wish that dang tree would dump the last of them, so I'd know I wouldn't have to repeat the sacking ANOTHER Saturday!)

Enjoyed the photos. I was just noticing a few leaves like those on the edge of the cornfield.

You've got some beautiful images of the last leaves, Felicia!
The first one seems to say "hey sun, I'm here waiting for
