We associate autumn with falling leaves. Falling leaves create an amazing spectacle of autumn fall. For several weeks, we watch as trees and other plants scatter their leaves. The wind helps them. Each species of tree delivers its leaves in different colours. In addition, their colour depends on the weather, and the time they break away from their host – the tree. There are also many other factors that influence the whole process of preparing trees for winter. May’s knowledge is very limited. This does not stop me from marvelling at nature’s autumn spectacle. I most enjoy a walk in the forest or park in windless weather. Then the leaves fall slowly, twisting in the air like little parachutes. They fall silently to the ground, forming fragile carpets of ephemeral patterns. In a moment, these works of autumn-fall art will be disturbed by those who walk over them. The rain will do the rest of the destruction. The leaves will become a uniform mass of matter. What will remain are individual leaves still glittering with the gold of the passing autumn.
