When Becky and I were trying to come up with October ideas I told her leaf bouquets would be fun except many of our members don't live in an area where they get have hardwoods and get color.

Becky asked me to do a tutorial on leaf bouquets Rolling on the floor laughing laughing because my bouquets are throw it in a vase Big Grin

So I took a short walk around this morning and did some photo's as we have rain moving in. It's still a tad early for peak color here in the southern mountains but this is what I took today.

Vic, thanks for sharing your fall walk with us! I still want to see a leaf bouquet and I know you'll throw one together for us when the leaves pop more. The Sugar maples are so pretty as it the red leaves. I love fall but we don't see much here unless we take a drive to the higher elevations.

The roses look so pretty in the bowl! I bet they smell wonderful!

Beautiful pictures! Hurray! Lovey dubby

This is about as much color as we have just yet except for the ubiquitous yellow scattered around.

Anyone remember pressing leaves between the pages of books as a kid? How about ironing them between two pieces of waxed paper to seal and preserve them and then cutting out around the shapes? Ah, childhood ... I think I just might collect some leaves and do that in a few weeks. Just thinking about it makes me feel like a kid again. Big Grin

Tee, did your grandmother have one of those huge old Bibles, heavy as can be? Well I have the one that belonged to Ninna, and not long ago I was thinking of trying to repair its binding so I had it out glancing through it. In its pages I found pressed leaves between tissues and even found 4 leafed clovers. They were those that I'd gathered with her or for her. Also found a lock of my hair. I put everything back the way I'd found it. Somehow I couldn't bring myself to undo history. It might just have to remain as it is.

And yes about the waxed paper.

Our leaves, a few of them are turning. Not many though. A little gold here and there, a touch of red occasionally. Yours sure are pretty Vic.

I believe she had a big family Bible but I don't know what happened to it. Crying We do have a gigantic old Dictionary though. Perfect for pressing leaves. How great that you found those things in Ninna's Bible ... and equally great that you put them back exactly as they were. What a treasure! Big Grin Lovey dubby

Same here on the dictionary - this thing was HUGE and I had forgotten about pressing leaves.

Your dogwood is beautiful Tee.

I remember sitting on the dictionary or standing on it to reach something. Dictionaries are good for a lot of things, aren't they? Notice how thick it is ... they don't make them like that anymore. Tons of word information in there. Even a tribute page to Noah Webster. Imagine that. Lovey dubby

That's when dictionaries were more like encyclopedias. They had whole pages written about some one or some thing. History.
