Seagrape AGAIN


Today's post and the one to follow started with these two leaves floating in the pool.


MadSnapper lifted them out and spent many moments deciding why and how to photograph them AGAIN.
If you have no clue what a Seagrape Tree is, CLICK HERE for the other 4 post I have done in the past. Bobby Appleseed brought a deal limb home and planted it about 20 years ago.


This monster tree resides in about 1/4 of our back yard.  As you can tell by the edges of the leaves SOMETHING has been a munchin on them.  I love the lacy look so it matters not to me. Also, there are 3 trillion leaves on this tree.


I had a big IDEA to get one of every color, ALL seven colors,  of the leaves that were on the ground....

I was just loving the color and shape of this fabulous fat leaf, and then all these other colors, spectacular, they are wonderful.You really should do something with them, put them in a shadow box or something. I can't wait to see the next post. Both Phil and I are flabbergasted at the bi-plane and he wants to know if it will fly when Bob is done. I am guessing the last plane is made from styrofoam meat trays.

How nice, I love the shape of the leaves and the colors are really nice. You have so much interesting in your garden :-) It's Friday morning [yeyyy] and only one more week to go, then I'll be off work for 2 weeks.
Have a lovely day my friend!
Hugs,
Eva

Lovely color! You can stop sending me your hot Florida weather now. I do believe I have had enough for now LOL! We are burning up here, high 90's for the last 20 days! Too early for that here. My plants don't care for that may days of hot heat. LOL! Have a great week. Lynne

Those leaves look huge,unless you have very small hands. I too am fascinated by leaves and all the textures and colours they display. Have a great day.

Cranberry Morning said...

Love these leaves! When we planted the teeny weeny trees from our wood into our backyard 20 years ago, I wasn't thinking about how shaded our backyard would become. I love it, although most of my flowering plants no longer want to flower. :-(

Great photos, Sandra!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

What huge leaves! Love the colors...neat!!

Angela said...

Well, you know that poses a question from me! lol The leaves here in West Virginia don't fall until September/October every year. So I guess in Florida they fall throughout the year?

"Auntie" sezzzzzz... said...

Ya' know the BEST part here, in your blog? Nope, not just the photos.

The FUN you HAVE, in doing this blog.

And how your FUN, shines through, in your posts.

"BJ" over at "Sweet Nothings" is another one of those bloggers, whose FUN shows through. And it's great. And so is yours.

FUN is one of the nicest things to find in "Pretty Blog Land."

"We sat in the garden, I indolently reading...
We had the best display of flowers yet seen--
wall flowers in profusion, columbines, phlox, and...huge scarlet poppies."

George said...

Those leaves are HUGE. I have to admit that the edges are very interesting. Knowing you, you did in fact get leaves in all seven colors (and perhaps a couple more).

Inger said...

You snap some good pictures!

Pam :) said...

Sea Grapes have the greatest selection of colorful leaves whether it is summer, winter or fall. And they are heart shaped.

You've done a good job of showing how beautiful leaves are.
I am a real tree lover in all their guises but I love silhouette trees at night with the street lights behind them best.

Wonderful leaves and great tree (checked out your other posts). Wonderful shots!

Scott said...

With a tree that large and 7 trillion leaves it keeps you pretty busy.

Ann said...

Love all those leaves and I would have done the same thing. I really like your new header.

SquirrelQueen said...

Your new header is a hoot, I love it!

It is fascinating to see all the different stages of these leaves. Those things are huge! Your last shot of the stack of leaves is my fav!
