leaf

_MG_7452Although autumn is not yet here, I found this solitary yellow cottonwood leaf, left over from last fall. Sometimes the cottonwood leaves cling to the tree branches here until almost spring, continuing to share their faded brilliance in the slanted light of the winter sun, reminding us of warmer and colorful days. Delicate, yet tenacious, this one lies on the bare ground, giving color still.
