Election Day Fireworks!

Here in central Iowa we’ve had an especially long and luxurious autumn. It’s Election Day (have you been practicing saying Madam President Clinton?) and there are still plenty of colorful leaves on the trees that haven’t yet fallen. While walking my good dogs Scout and Finch yesterday, I started picking up colorful leaves that caught my eye and by the time I made it home I’d accumulated a kaleidoscopic collection. Here’s what I found, including sugar maple, redbud, hickory, tulip, viburnum (trilobum and nudum), Japanese maple, spirea, ginkgo, and white oak. My very own fireworks celebration!
