While waiting for the bus shortly after noon today, I looked around to see what the foliage was doing after last night’s hard frost.

A maple tree next to the bus stop was raining leaves!  There was little or no breeze, so I wondered what caused all that activity.

The leaves just kept falling.  My estimate would be about 500 leaves per minute.  Isn’t that amazing?

See how the air changes color when you look at the pic?  That’s what it’s like when you stand under a red or yellow tree.
