We've also been enjoying nature's palette of leaves at this time of year. We made some earth art, or ephemeral art, using what we found in the forest. This is inspired by artists like Andy Goldsworthy and Nils Udo.
It's amazing how many different colours of leaves we can find!
Here is the site of some of our masterpieces. When we returned there this past week, the wind had blown the leaves away, but the frames were still there - every week this "earth art" changes, depending on the weather (and possibly passers-by too!). It's ephemeral, fleeting, changing, brief. That's why these photos can help us to remember - the brilliant colours, the warm days, the mosquitoes!, and the crisp smell of fall in the air.
