Fall is really here.

Right now our maples are showing off their oranges, reds and yellows while our ash trees wear pastel yellow and pale violet.

Soon the maples and ashes will lose their leaves but we’ll get a second burst of color from the oaks — ochre, rust and burgundy.

Enjoy it now.  The trees will be bare in November.

    Although I’ll be sorry to see the end of my favorite season, I’m welcoming the return of our chickadees, titmice, and juncos. Love watching them.
