Fall Color Fading Fast
Red Maple with Yellow Poplars Oct. 28, 2010
The weather has turned chilly enough that we fired up our woodstove. Most of the leaves have fallen from the trees although a few red maples still retain their color.
Red Maple with Christmas Ferns
The Red Maple and Christmas Ferns remind me that the holiday season isn't far away. The ferns will stay green until next spring when fiddleheads form with the old growth finally turning brown during the summer.
My dog, Kookie, loves it when I go on these walks. She's usually hunting for chipmunks or anything else she can dig up.
Back at the house, she is content to go through her toy box. Unfortunately, she never puts the toys back!
