    things to do with leaves

    A small plug for something I posted on my site the other day: preserving fall leaves with paraffin wax.

    (Note: I have had second thoughts about the whole do-it-without-a-double-boiler thing, and I think you SHOULD use a double-boiler for safety reasons.)

    Anyway, I'm just curious what else you are doing with leaves! Right now is the best time for collecting them around where I live, except the ginkgos which need another week or two.

    Leaves? Your trees have leaves?! Ours are just starting to grow again. The 'canes stripped and shredded most of the summer's growth. I'm even having a hard time finding pine cones that are unmarred by the storms.
