:Leaf patterns

Having read Joan Colvin's book about nature and her suggest we study how trees grow and how limbs and leaves overlap, I have been looking at leaves -- the patterns they make, the way light falls on different ones differently. You don't have to anticipate using these insights or the photos as guides for potential quilts -- although they could be that. It's just good for the eye and the sense of pattern and appreciation of how wonderfully complex and interesting al of nature is.

I took these leaf pictures recently. I'll probably be taking more since autumn is very much just around the corner as the brisk early morning breezes testify.
