This code take advantage of Hamid Naderi Yeganeh's wonderful parametric curves that describe oak and maple leaf shapes  and MATLAB's built-in Autumn colormap.
After using some randomization on the colors chosen within the colormap, the leaf coordinate, and leaf angle, we have ourrselves a nice little leaf pile generator! Why wait until Mid October when you can experience those beautiful few weeks all year round within the comfort of your MATLAB console?
