All through the woods


These pale dried leaves all throughout the woods have been getting my attention all winter.  They seem to be all over.  I don't know if they are there every year and I'm just now seeing them, or if it is something about our last fall season that caused the leaves to dry and not fall off.
Anyway, I finally stopped the car and snapped a couple.

glad you stopped, what a scene it is.

They seem to glow in the forest. I believe they might be beech trees which hang on to their leaves most of the winter, even up here in my neck of the woods.

Those are leaves? I thought, when I first saw the photo, that the Dogwoods were blooming.

That IS interesting. Glad you stopped.

The dried leaves against the dark trunks made for a wonderful photo. Glad you stopped for some shots. :)

This is a beautiful scene, Amy. I can just picture some deer and other wildlife living in those woods.

We have the same phenomena here, lots of leaves that are brown but still on the trees. But the winds of yesterday and today will surely take care of that. Otherwise, I guess the new buds just eventually push the old leaves to the ground.

They almost look like dainty flowers...
