walnut leaves

Since we haven't had many storms yet, the leaves have been hanging on my walnut tree longer than usual this year. Today I noticed as they were falling off a lot of the leaves on the ground had this interesting striation before turning completely brown and drying up. It was such a pretty effect I decided to bring some in and make a little arrangement for the table. I did feel a little like Morticia Addams with her flowerless rose-thorn arrangements, but decay can be quite beautiful at times.
