Rain started falling a few hours ago. The drops came fat and fast and, compared to the perfect, mid-70-degree weather of recent days, it feels absolutely frigid. Today, I think, fall has officially arrived.

There’s something magical about rain in the Autumn. Water coats the leaves. They look like jewels piled up in lawns and chandeliers dangling from stems up above.

Inspired by the season’s beauty, some Footprint writers created a collection of art dedicated to their favorite trees. We hope you feel inspired to go enjoy the colors before everything goes dormant.

The Leaf Lyrics:

“Leaves flutter like flames” – a haiku by Meghan Eldridge

“Stuck in a garden with no way to bargain” – a limerick by James Jordan

“All things elm” – a playlist by Kelly Gehringer

“If trees had names” – an illustration by Kat Seal

“Not all leaves are created equal” – a Footprint photo gallery
