what happens when you watch the leaves fall

In the autumn it feels really important to spend time lying on the ground under the autumn trees and to really look and watch and listen.  I feel lucky to be able to spend time with very young children watching the autumn leaves and discovering new things... are the leaves waving at us?  Are any going to fall as we are watching...?  Is that a bird going past?  What can we hear?  Who can spot a leaf falling?  Can we catch one...?  Can you find a special leaf?

In a session last autumn someone found this acorn leaf with a heart on it.

And a young child excitedly brought me this sycamore leaf - they were really intrigued  by all the spots on it.
