Evidence of Our Human Seasons

My little bamboo tree stretches for the Sun.
Its leaves are candy to my black & white "Panda" cat.

"As trees have leaves that are nicked and eaten, human beings have feelings that are just as worn by the act of living. We have a right to these. They are evidence of our human seasons." -- Mark Nepo

Leaves from this stately Dumbarton Oaks tree  now mulch the forest floor .
There, they will provide nourishment for next Spring's new leaves.
