Anybody have an issue saying the word “foliage?”  I worked with someone once who did.  Anybody have a guess as to who it was?  I wonder if she’s reading now.  Anyway, the fo·li·age [ˈfōl(ē)ij] is about to peak here in Winchester.  Hope the weather holds for some great images.

It Begins

The yearly migration of the biggest leaves in the world from their branches to our front door is about to begin.  Ok, they may not be the world’s biggest leaves, but they sure as heck feel like it.  This tree is in our back yard and yet, somehow, the leaves end up down the stairwell in the front of our house!  It wouldn’t be such an issue if this tree didn’t litter our yard year round.  Somebody needs to invent the device where we can be proactive just suck the leaves right off the tree.
