These are some photos that I took on a recent walk in the woods (end of November). It was strange because almost all of the decidious leaves were off the trees, except for this particular species. (Chestnuts, I think?)
The leaves have completely died and curled into an interesting cone shape, but haven’t fallen. They remind me of birds, or even starfish.
I’m in NC visiting my family this week. (Bizarrely, it’s actually no warmer here than it is in New England right now.) I hope to post when I can. Hope everyone has a great winter week.
