Thanks Tim. Yes, there's quite a few leaves blowing around--and still lots more on the trees to come down. :(

Well, it seems to be keeping comments now ... the site was acting queerly last night; maybe something was messed up.
Anyway, before I was so rudely deleted, I remarked on the delcate tracery of the black (well, they might as well be) weed stems and flowers (Queen Anne's lace?) and the white of the snow contrasting with the warm brown of the leaf, and how effective it was.
And said also that the treatment reminded me of the effectiveness of the scene in "Schindler's List" where Spielberg breaks the discipline of B&W with the pink coat.

Yeah, I noticed that there wasn't much activity last night. Thanks for your comment about the contrasting shapes, etc. Actually the color of the old seed heads is just a little darker than the leaf. They are from a perennial, and somewhat invasive plant that has sort of dark pink flowers, whose name escapes me right this time. :)
