The trees lost their leaves and the flowers are done until next year. However, we can make art out of the dry leaves, flowers and evergreens. Just take a stroll around your yard or the neighborhood and you will be able to assess what can be done out of nothing to wow your family and friends. Smile. Enjoy the ride.
