I so enjoy the fall colors! Every year we make a special trip in to town to view 'THE TREE'. Anyone who has lived here through the season knows about the one enormous maple tree that has the best color ever. But it's a challenge to see it at its peak because one day it is green, then yellow, then WHAM it is flaming orange and a couple of days later every single leaf is on the ground. It's like little elves go out in the night and pick them all of and throw them down.
So, when I can see it at that peak time it is quite a treat:
The other spectacular tree is right in our front yard. We actually have THREE maple trees in the yard. One turns yellow, one turns brown, and this one on the end goes nuts with color. It is so close to the house that the side that turns color is over the roof so it is hard to photograph.
You can see it's not quite 'there' yet, but it will be soon. FALL IS HERE, can winter be far behind?
