It isn’t as glorious an autumn as I have seen, but when I woke up this morning, the sun was shining and the woods were glowing gold.
Our backyard with the table, the glider, and the shed.
This is as pretty as our woods get. We don’t get that gorgeous scarlet because we have no maple trees. The dark shade from the tall oaks makes it impossible for maples to thrive.
The first leaves to change color, the first to drop from the tree
We do have one maple directly in front of the house. It is turning scarlet. I’m not sure, but it may be the only maple on our property.
