JUST LEAF ME ALONE!

Leaves seem to be cropping up in my photos a lot...even my sketching.I think their simplicity...but complexity to, is a little kind of wonderful
The colours in them, the range of shapes and sizes is really extraordinary. 
I walk around looking at the ground, finding new pretty ones, and smuggling them home-in handbags, on car seats, nestled in my hand.All ready to be displayed and snapped, admired.Then these little found treasures usually end up on the garden, becoming humous, or maybe stuck in a jar to gather dust and be part of my little nature collections, kept on my desk, on mantlepieces, on top of cupboards- to inspire and admire a little longer.
I just cannot seem to leave them alone!
