The tree in my front yard is looking like this right now. It makes me almost forget how messy this tree is. I love to cut off some of these branches and put them in a vase. It makes a beautiful and free fall bouquet.
Make sure you rinse off the branches when you bring them in the house. I did this a few weeks ago and found a lovely spider crawling around my piano where I put the vase and I am NOT a fan of spiders.
