We found a few nice red maple leaves out in the yard.
We dropped by the U.S. Botanic Garden in DC to give Oliver a chance to molest some new and interesting flowers. He was actually very well behaved! There’s a kids’ are in the middle with big tubs of water that he thought were pretty fun.
More maple leaves! These are from last month – they’ve all since fallen to the ground. I am way too lazy to rake them up, but when dad came to visit he raked them to the curb and the vacuum shredder truck took them away to become compost.
More leaves! I think I waited too long for the Japanese maple leaves in the yard, but maybe I’ll take a couple of shots of them on the ground before raking them up.
Yay, a photo! There are a couple of trees with these extra-garish leaves on our usual walk through Rock Creek Park. Oliver isn’t very interested in stopping to look at them unless there are some hanging low enough to grab and eat.
