The progression of autumn color is happening quickly here now. The native big leaf maples have gone golden, as have other native trees. In the parks and home gardens and parking lots, the landscape trees are adding reds and oranges. Here in our garden, which is mostly in shade now, the color change is slower, which is fine with me. We get to enjoy it longer in the season.
In our neighborhood park, where we go for our walks, the color was peaking this week. Here's a peek.
More gold to come here. It's good to not have it all at once.
In the wooded area the color is much more subtle, but the path will soon be strewn with leaves.
We are heading into what might be our last warm, sunny weekend. Rain will come by Tuesday, and we may not see the 60 degree days again. We'll all have to make the most of these last good days.
Our traditional family cider bee is tomorrow. Morning fog will hopefully clear off to bright sunshine as we work and play and eat together.
Here's to hoping your weekend is great too.
