October colors

Autumn gets lovelier by the day here.  The days have been in the 40s and 50s, nights in the 30s.  It rained yesterday, so I couldn't get pictures, and then last night, the winds kicked in and blew many of the leaves away.  Sigh.  So, when I went out at lunchtime today, many of the trees are now past their prime, but many more are still on their way.  I ooh and ahhh everywhere I go around here because of how beautiful all the trees are.

(My nephew and I collected all these... I love the purple-veined yellow ones.)
(... to orange...)
(... to orange from another angle...)
(...to yellow.)
(This pic's a bit washed out, but the center of the tree is orange, and the outer leaves are still green, which was just really really cool, like it's burning from the inside.)

(And here are the ever-changing colors of the backyard view.)


  1. This post reminded me why autumn is my favorite season. :)

    Here in Alberta, we don't have it. We just have a very, very, very long winter. :P

  2. So pretty! NONE of our trees have turned yet.
