Green Leaf mobile...

"...it reminds me of this long walk I do under the towering arches of summer trees and the lovely variations of greens in the light, laced with blue sky." Imagine blue sky...

After gale force winds serpentined through my neighborhood, I slid out the backdoor in fine Groucho Marx fashion in search of leaf combos. My next door neighbor's aspen tree had left some nice ensembles in my backyard along with a smattering of elm leaves from my disease resistant elm tree. I trudged a half block to the nearest ginkgo tree and gobbled up a fine ginkgo leaf specimen--reminiscent of my ginkgo leaf beerrings!
I scurried back home to my basement hide-away and put pencil to salvaged paper for this rendering.

An empty and forlorn Spaten Optimator beer bottle from Germany paired nicely with the elm leaves, and a Pilsner Urquell for the aspens, with an Italian Peroni for the ginkgo.

The leaves range in size from 1 1/2" long to approximately 2 1/2" long with copper rods five to six inches--perfect to dangle from that little corner of contemplation.

Drop me a line if you'd like to begin a surreptitious writ-a-thon (fotos of cats in lingerie are not required), regarding your own leaf mobile. You decide the style, intricacy and number of leaves, color and type of bottles, and I start configuring. Hooray for leaves!
