Almost annual.  Like growing handprints, they track their interest and style in leaf drawings.  Ani was determined to know the names, looking them up in our new tree guide.  We were talking about Latin today and how we can find Latin in the roots of many words in English, and Ani quipped, you can find latin in the roots of plants too...roots of plants, get it? Acer saccharum, Fagus grandifolia...Mwah ha, a botany-language joke, I love it.

Still November, still writing...
