Last year at this time the trees were mostly bare, the Fall color just a last hint of what had been only a few weeks before. This year, because we had lots of late season rain and Summer started later than usual and then was pretty hot, as I understand it, meant our Fall color was spectacular and has lasted longer than usual. I haven’t been here all that long, of course (see my forthcoming Tuesday post) but all the long-time residents say this is the best Fall color in many years. We’ve certainly been enjoying it.
Here’s a picture of the new Maple we put in our back yard. It’s doing it’s new tree best to join the show. Hope your Fall is great!
