I am tired...

of making leaves.


It takes a lot of leaves to make a tree.

I think I just might have gathered enough...


To make some branches...


So that I might lie down in the shade and take a rest.

Though I don't suppose that I should expect a tree to grow overnight, now should I?

I'm fainting here! I hope you will tell all of us how to bid on your purse when it is ready for the fund raiser. I'd love a throw my two cents at it...

Ohw... what a sweet rake you got! It wouldn't surprise me if you could grow a tree overnight... You are marvelous at these things.

Susan, I think you have taken leaf of your senses. At this rate you will have an entire forest!

Give yourself a b-rake and leaf off making leaves.

At the rate you are going, I would not be surprised if you grow a tree overnight...

I love your photo with the little rake. Making so many of the same objects can be a little tiring and joke lightens things up.

I can just picture a little Kelly doll jumping into the leaves, with Skipper waiting her turn....

Crystal said...

Holy Moly, this is going to be a masterpiece!

After seeing all of this gorgeous-ness over your last few posts, I am beginning to think you made the rake too!?!

In any event, someone should alert Southeby's - there's a breathtaking piece of art in progress here.
