Quintessential here refers to the raggedy shape and yellowing of this late-summer leaf. Everything about it says late summer, in this case with an embroidery of raindrops.
Indeed, in the five minutes since I took this picture, while I was photostreaming and prepping, the rain arrived with force. I’m glad I was out in the first few drops, and I’m glad I’m inside as the heavier stuff descends.
