As others have noted (scooped again!), this challenge is timely, as we have the ultimate graceful dilapidation all around usin the temperate zone of the northern hemisphere.

We have an apple tree in the garden that has delivered an ever more bountiful crop throughout the 25 years we've known it. Maybe it's climate change, or maybe it's just reaching maturity. Next to it is a pear tree, performing similarly, with a wonderful crop right now, which was written off as useless by an expert horticulturalist over 20 years ago.

Part of this is the endless recycling of nourishing materialsin the hundreds of windfalls, as well as the annual leaf fall.

...and even the dead sycamore leaves lie like fallen soldiers, doing their bit for the furtherance of their species...

Alan,

You're right the fall provides ample examples of 'graceful dilapidation' in our natural surroundings.

Mahalofor some well done shots.
