In early December, this is what this palette of the frosty forest floor is telling us. Quite a set of late autumn colours of lost leafs. They look up to where to came from, the high canopies.
We should be very thankful to them for their incredible service this season, this for their production of O2 (oxygen) and binding CO2 (carbondioxide), for their delivery of sugars for trees, fungi and animals, for filtering the dusty air.
Leafs are key for life. They actually are the master servants in the Empire of the Sun. Now they rest in peace on the forest floor, waiting to find their way in the circle of life. Winter is coming.
