The First Red Tree

When I went out to get my paper the other morning, one of our small maple trees had turned a brilliant red.  It was a beautiful contrast to the other trees, even on an overcast day.

 This one is taken from the other side of the wall with the gate in it.  Maybe my view of a small tree is a little biased.
 Aren't the clouds in this sky nice?  Even better than the color of the trees.
 Yes, I was right.  The maple is a small tree.
Happy Wednesday, everyone!

Maybe rivaled by a mountainside of golden Aspens, red maples are my favorite fall color.

I miss the beautiful fall colors from the Northeast. Our trees are just starting to show some small spots of color. I hope the heavy rains hold off till they change more.

Gorgeous, we have leaves dropping all over now (sigh) lots of work raking up for compost! Hope all is well Diane

Our colors are confused this year. It's not the normal progression like usual, and some leaves are just dropping without changing. :(
