Mystery Trees

 I realize this may only be a mystery to me, but I noticed these trees in the woods whose leaves die, but they don't fall off like the  leaves on the other trees.

 The leaves look like delicate pieces of paper that have been dyed in tea.
 They light up the woods.
I'm curious to see what happens to these leaves when the new leaves come out.

Maybe they're tea leaves.

These leaves, which are so pretty among the bare trunks all winter, are starting to show up on the ground here at my house this week. I guess the new growth is stirring and forcing them off the limbs.
