Cottonwood leaves flash bright yellow in the fall. The colors are stunning and beautiful. But have you ever taken a close look at those yellowing leaves? While they are their brightest, the leaves are soft and velvety. Sensuous to the touch as a kitten or a newborn’s head. As they continue to turn, the yellow fades, the softness fades. A brittle brown leaf ready to nourish the earth below it is released to do its work.
