Weekly Travel Theme: Foliage

Thanks to Alisa for inviting us to join her weekly Travel Theme challenge! This week’s theme is foliage.

LONE COLOR — Autumn’s colored leaf spectacular has been thrown a giant loop by the summer’s drought, followed by late summer rain and bouncing temperatures. The beautiful changes that normally begin in August were just beginning to manifest in the last week of September and in odd ways. Most trees are still wearing their full green canopy, yet this small sassafras was down to just two leaves.
FRIZZ AND CUPS — OK, this is a bit of a cheat, since technically, lichens have no foliage, but thought the texture on this was too good to pass up.
