Keep the foliage around even after it's fallen from the leaves this winter. We love this example of framing pressed leaves in floating frames. It lets the light shine through and really accentuates the shape of the leaf.
This particular example uses large tropical leaves, but the same could be done with an indigenous species from your region. Like the large leaves used here? So do we: We're thinking of taking a catalpa leaf from the tree in our parents' yard.
