Several weeks ago, as I was driving, I noticed the leaves starting to change on a few trees. I believe they are oak trees. The leaves where already changing to a dark burgundy. We have had several cold fronts in our area about a month ago. I think that may have caused the colors to start the change a little earlier than normal.
We started the summer pretty mild, but the temperature has been so hot these past few weeks. In fact the entire east coast seems to be terribly hot.
I don't know about you, but I am ready for the fall season to begin. I'm looking forward to seeing the beautiful pumpkins, gourds, and Indian corn decorations. I look forward to making soups, stews, and bread and yummy rolls.
So to kick off the season, I wanted to give one of my leaves as a coloring sheet for yourself, or for your child, or grandchild to enjoy. Just go to the coloring sheet to your right titled Maple Leaf, then print out the pdf file. Enjoy!
