November is for falling leaves. Autumn is the one season this East Coast transplant totally misses.We don’t get to see the turning leaves here in Northern California.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much I miss bundling up in the clean crisp air to go out to see the fall foliage over the Delaware Water Gap. It’s totally a stunning site. (Can you tell I’m feeling a bit nostalgic :) We just don’t get that wonderful red and orange landscape here. So as a reminder to me of Autumns past and as a good way to brush up on your tree botany. Here’s a printable with a few of my favs.
And did you know that certain trees are thought to hold magical properties. Maple is associated with strength and wisdom. Oak is linked with success, strength, courage and longevity. Beech is know for knowledge, understanding, balance and luck. And Aspen is often paired with intuition, communication and the power of vibrant speech. It’s good to know these things when you need a autumn pick me up:)
