Most of the Maples and other brightly colored trees have shed their leaves and are ready to retire for the year. The Oaks, however, are in their glory. Is it just me or are the trees becoming more glorious each year? The Oaks are like a tapestry of gorgeous colors...russet reds, chestnut browns, dijon mustard golds, dusty dark cranberries and today I saw a burnished orange that was spectacular. I wanted to take pictures, but I found that as I neared each tree, it was so many shades of autumn that I really couldn't capture its beauty, so I decided to leave ( ??) it to your imagination. Today was another autumn gift in the 60s. Each time we have a day like this I rejoice, as it may be the last one for many months, but oh, how I enjoy the warmth of the sun and the beauty of the colors of fall.
Hope you enjoyed your day as well.
