I reckon a fallen leaf can tell a story.
When I saw a Catalpa leaf that had fallen in our yard, I was reminded of a phenomenon that happens during the summer.
Can you see what I saw? Can you picture what happened on this leaf last summer?
extrafloral nectaries on catalpa leaves.
I reckon that fallen leaf, with its outstanding spots, reminds me of how lively a place it was a few weeks ago.
BTY, last fall I wrote a post about another fallen leaf... an aspen leaf with a cute little stem gall.
