DC and I had some free time before his mother's birthday banquet last Sunday, and we took advantage of it by going for a nice, long walk. The liquidambars are finally coming into their peak of coloring round my parts, so, inspired by Rachel's (she must live in a different part of SoCal to have had them so early!), I collected a bouquet. Tucked them into the wiring of the lights. Et voila.
I will enjoy these for another week or so until I they are replaced with the ornaments and snowflakes which I am still preparing. For now, autumn leaves are perfect.
