For some unaccountable reason, although it may have something to do with the drought we had all summer, our trees have not been as brilliantly colored as in years past. A few trees are showing color this week. These can be seen out my kitchen window, and I am grateful for even this small bit of fire.
Edit: I stand corrected. I had not been out in the car for 2 days when I wrote this - but we went out for an early dinner tonight and I was amazed at how colorful the trees had become almost overnight. Perhaps the colder nights we've had lately had something to do with that.
