Fragile keepsakes

Leaves can be saved to mark a special
day, trip, or event. Sometimes I write the
place and date to remember why I saved
a particular leaf.
During autumn it's fun to look for a colorful leaf. Of course, there are many to choose from, but perhaps one will be too unique to leave behind on the ground.

I press mine in a big thick telephone book and later try to find a frame that compliments nature's free gift.
In a few days I will travel to Louisiana and walk the farmland where my grandparents once lived. One of my objectives will be to save a special leaf from that property.
