Colored leaves in heaven?

I'm currently living in Southern California, where there isn't a lot of evidence of fall color change. (There's some--there are quite a few sweet gums grown here.)

A post by Bonnie, consisting of a photo of yellow maple leaves, lead to this musing. (I thought about writing "only yellow maple leaves," or "just yellow maple leaves," but decided that no leaf or leaves should be minimized in that way.) The musing is this -- will leaves change their colors in heaven?

I know of no scriptural evidence on that matter. However, C. S. Lewis put it like this, writing about heaven after Narnia:
"All of the old Narnia that mattered, all the dear creatures, have been drawn into the real Narnia through the Door." (The Last Battle, New York: Macmillan, 1956)

There is scriptural evidence for leaves in heaven.

What do you think?

That's a interesting thought that never really crossed my mind before. I kind of hope that the leaves will change in Heaven because it's just one of God's breath taking creations that will be overflowing in Heaven.

I think for the beauty of it, why not? Are there seasons in Heaven?
