Today’s Simple Nature Sketch
On Thanksgiving Day, mother nature delivered torrential rains and howling winds! We received the tail end of hurricane Matthew. It was a wild day. I watched leaves whip by my windows, darting and diving as the wind tossed them about. Some had not intended to leave their cozy branches so soon, but nature had other plans.
We lost power, but all was well. Everyone was safe and grateful to have weathered the storm unscathed. The day after the storm, I ventured out on my daily walk. Remnants of the blustery day were scattered about. Twigs, branches and shredded leaves were strewn far and wide.
Along the way, I witnessed a scattering of small tree branches with leaves still intact. I found this little leaf with its strip of green attached to a small branch near my home. It stood out from the others with its unique marking of green. Clasping the small twig in my hands, I strolled home to capture my subject for the day.
