Autumn is coming late this year, there is still a lot of green left on the trees. A couple of storms have blown leaves off the trees up the mountain while others are just beginning to turn. Several nights in the 30s lately have encouraged a few to show some brilliant color. There are a few maples that are just blazing red, gorgeous against an azure sky.
This one is near my work. There is still some green on it too.
This one is in the park where I walk after work, trying to get in some exercise while the weather is good. It still has a way to go.
Also near my office, this maple didn’t get the memo to be red, it is brilliant orange.
There are several of these in a row at a bank, still showing some green with the orange.
One of the dogwoods over our drive is finally putting on its burgundy colors.
Our peak for color is going to be much later this year, I think it is still a couple of weeks away. I’ll bring you more color from the mountain as it changes. One other harbinger of autumn, the pumpkin patch at a church on my way to work is back.
It does appear to be a most sincere pumpkin patch again this year.
Could the Great Pumpkin be far behind?
Another red beauty at the edge of the pumpkin patch.
Back home, the little bit of floral beauty left is still going strong. I hope that chrysanthemum lasts a bit longer!
Are you seeing pretty colors at your place?
