Like I said I've got one (possibly two) FARATS entries to show you. The first is from Kokorosashi of my beautiful machine:
The subject of his email to me was "FARATS entry -- woot!", and here's some info he provided about the tree:
Fall has finally ... finally ... arrived in Kentuckiana. Sadly, my best prospect lost most of its leaves in the course of one gusty night -- so here's my runner-up, from the campus of Indiana University Southeast, just over the river in New Albany, IN, where I go to school.
I believe that what this tree lacks in substance, it makes up in style, with its beautiful dark bark and flame-red leaves :D
Hope you're having a good Fall up there in Canada!
PS - Having served its purpose, the leaf fell off my shoe at approximately 12:55 PM Eastern. I know because I have been staring at it non-stop ever since clicking the "Publish" button. I'm gonna go find some eye drops; you enjoy your afternoon.
PPS - Keri has indicated that she would be happy to enter her picture in the contest! Here it is!
