One of my favourite fall-time projects had always been collecting those fallen leaves – a way of preserving the beautiful fall season with us for a long time to come. Not that I get to see much colours here like in other parts of the country/world, but still 🙂 Wonder when I lost that habit though – may be when I got out of school !?!
Recently, I got to know that my FIL is still doing that! My in-laws have a bigggg garden back home in Bengaluru! U name it and they grow it – passion fruit, chikkoo, brinjals, pumpkin – they have it all! And he picks up fallen leaves from the garden and in they go between the pages of the books he reads. After about 2-3 weeks, out come these nice pressed leaves with all the fine details offering a visual treat. When I got back one of my books from Bengaluru, I also got for free a few of his priced possessions. Thanks to him, I am back to treading my path carefully and collecting the fallen leaves too 😀 And then, I used a few of them to make some bookmarks re-using decors from marriage invites etc.. 🙂
Pretty, isn’ it 😉
Well, nowhere pretty compared to the gorgeous pics of the fall season most of u have put up, but just that I did nt want to miss the challenge – what with Wednesdays and Thursdays being the only days on which I post now 😛 😛
So, this one is just for the challenge and the sweet memories and the sweet little joys 🙂
