It isn't just leaves and flowers...

It isn't just leaves and flowers that make up the color of the fall.

This is also a color that I see a lot of in my yard.

Many people work hard at getting rid of the stumps after a tree comes down.

We don't. My wife uses them as pedestals for flower posts and Christmas decorations.

The stumps also allow  a host of new life.

As you can see, these mushrooms add a lot of color if only for a few days.
