Doodle 042 - Ginkgo Leaf Fairy

It is finally starting to feel like Fall here in Florida... to us it begins with cooler mornings and random trees deciding to get completely naked from one day to the other while the rest of the woods just sticks around with their green leaves and what I would like to think of as embarrassed tree feelings for their exhibitionist arboreal friends... I say this because we have one such tree by the apartment.

It is always the first one to shed all its leaves and the first one to put them back on... then loose them in the cold and has to sprout them again later on hehehe.

Exhibitionist tree is exhibitionist - blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 5 mins.
 Anyway, after thinking of that I drew this:
Ginkgo Leaf Fairy on Fall Parade - blue and mechanical pencil on plain Moleskine notebook. Aprox 10 mins.
 Oh and yes, our days are still rather hot, at least on the mid 80's and they probably will stay like that for a while. The humidity has been way lower lately, so it is awesome outside, perfect picnic weather!

Haha, I *love* the trees, and the backstory behind that drawing =).

You speak for the trees! The weather is better where I am as well. We have had terrible heat and drought that we have only gotten relief from in the past couple of weeks. Now I can get back to my flower beds that have grown up for not being able to weed them in the 100 degree weather. I have 200 daffodil bulbs to plant this week!

I love the trees - I'm trying to imagine in what kind of twisted Disney cartoon they would be.

@wrenandstitchy: Thanks! I am happy you liked it.

@Jeff: That would be a hilarious cartoon.
