Morning Walks

This extraordinarily large Sycamore leaf, which Tall Husband had framed recently, was found on our neighborhood walking trail. Just for comparison, note the leaf tucked beneath the frame. It was found last year on the same tree...and we thought it was large. The framed leaf is 12" x 12".

Early morning walks along a wooded trail are magical. Everyone else is still sleeping, so you have the cool, dewy world to yourself. Your senses seem keener...eyes and ears are sharper; the smells from the forest floor rise up to greet you. You see, smell and hear things you would have missed, had you waited for the sun to climb a bit higher in the this gigantic Sycamore leaf that was just within reach.


  1. We had a large Sycamore tree in our front lawn and that leaf you framed IS big!

    Our whole street was lined with them, trees AND leaves....

    Have a great weekend.

  3. Dear Annie,

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving a little note. Early morning walks are a lovely way to get the day started. I used to walk most mornings and really miss it. Thanks for prompting me to get back out there and see the world in the quiet hours!
