You can see it across the street from the grocery store. There’s a maple tree next to it that is a reliable indicator of Autumn. If it isn’t the first tree to change color, it is always the first one to show the best color.
This year, it didn’t change color until a couple of days ago … and for the first time, it’s not red, but orange, maybe a dark lemony rust.
You can also see that the tree is aging. It looked a lot healthier two or three years ago. I suspect a couple of years of gypsy moths have not done this tree any good at all. But still, it is my favorite tree. You can see it anytime you happen to be here in Autumn. It’s just across from the grocery. Bring a wide-angle lens.
