At least I got out for a walk in the nice weather before the thinning out began, and got some phone shots.
|The view on my walk around the neighborhood last week, before the blustery wind.|
|My iPhone almost exploded when it snapped the hot color of these sugar maples.|
|I love seeing the bright colors and those faint blue hills in the distance as I come down the hill.|
At home after my ramble around the neighborhood, I sat on the patio and had a rest.
|Norway maples that have spread all through the woods|
are always a bright yellow
|Out in the meadow I can see the American persimmon tree|
that I brought home in my carryon luggage in 2007
|The pretty sourwood tree before the blow down.|
|A sassafras sapling, all shaggy and orange.|
There is still fall color to be seen -- the red maples in my yard haven't even turned their brilliant crimson color yet, and won't until November. But the weekend's blow has taken away a lot of the fullness and color and spectacle of autumn around here.
