Artist's Description

Lake Leland, Washington USA

Dying leaves of a Big Leaf Maple (Acer macrophyllum). A large member of the maple family that grows abundantly in the northwest coastal regions of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Its many large leaves turn bright yellow in autumn and then proceed to fade and darken from ocher to rust. I measured one leaf the other day that was, from stem to stern, 22 inches long and a good 18 inches wide. That could be the reason they are called Big Leaf Maples, eh? (Ya think.) There are hundreds of fallen leaves and, if you are inclined to keep your lawn in decent shape, they have to be cleaned up just as the really wet, windy and nasty weather approaches. But, as a positive note, they make terrific leaf mulch or compost. Nature doth provide. And in the process of their dying and falling they are a sight to behold.
