The lives of Leaves are truly inspirational. They flourish in many colours from crisp yellows, warming reds to vibrant greens. They are widespread- making sure they are present around every corner of the world, and no matter what country you are in, the variations in shapes, patterns, colours and what surrounds them is a never ending amazement.
Each year during the struggle of the harsher months, trees retrieve their nutrients and water from their leaves, forcing them to crisp, dry up and float to the ground. Some form massive puddles – the perfect playground for children’s wellingtons, some become washed away in streams and others play a fundamental role in plumbing nutrients back into the circle of life. No matter what its course, after detaching its connection from a tree – its reunion is carried out year after year. New Leaves unravel, stretch and bask once again in their sun, when it’s their prime time to be alive. No matter what the species of leaf, they are all inspirational, representing the never-ending flow of life, bringing colours to our streets and inspiration to our hearts.
