Glorious Chartreuse

My walk this morning ( used my Nordic poles all the way for 3.5 km today) was from "puddle to puddle" of fabulous rust and yellowy chartreuse mulberry leaves. They are a fabulous colour and very shiny to boot. Good colour combo for quilts. I must get a photo but did not take the camera as it is too hard to use when I have the poles. The mulberries seem to drop ALL leaves instantly when there is a hard frost and we had -5 C last night, so down they came. VERY VERY pretty. To heck with the red carpet. I'll take a carpet of chartreuse mulberry leaves any day
