The Last Fall Color
The bright, colorful leafy stage of autumn is already giving way to a rainy, drippy, brown stage. We're definitely past the peak leaf time, such that it is around here.
So I thought I'd share a few more pictures of leaves, from the past week or two.
I'm doing this partly because I can't think of anything else to write. Dave asked how my day was yesterday, and I felt utterly blank. I couldn't think of a single occurrence worth mentioning! Which is kind of scary.
But, well, it's November. It's a time of growing darkness and dormancy.
Our Japanese maple (not really ours, but our landlord's!) is one of the last trees to turn. As you can see, it reddens from the top down. If last year is any indication, it will be completely red in a week or so.
