And They All Fell Down

Tuesday night's rain and wind left its footprint in the way of strewn leaves everywhere and I spent Wednesday morning in the Rose Arc raking up the fallen Beech leaves I was admiring just last week. It's not true that all the leaves of fall fell this week, but the landscape was noticably different Wednesday morning. The rest of the week was reminiscent of some of the first workdays of this internship in early April. The sky is dominant again now that the canopy of the decidious trees is emptying at Brooklyn Botanic. Hopefully Joe and I will find some bags of raked leaves on our way to Floyd Bennett this weekend and we can make some good winter compost and leafmold piles.
