Not all leaves are created equal

Fall foliage means color: reds, yellows, oranges, browns. Fall foliage means the raw and dusty smell of crunched leaves. Fall foliage means the sound of petioles snapping from their twigs, leaves greeting piles of cousins with a soft “chk” and scratching sidewalks with their maraca-like shaking every time someone passes by. Here are some Mid-Missouri colors; you can imagine the other senses. – Tina Casagrand
