It’s a mild but gray day today here in Northern Virginia. Some mixture of snow and rain is predicted for tomorrow. It’s as good a time as any to pay homage to fall’s jewel box colors, soon to be washed away. What a beautiful season it’s been.
Kiko and I took our morning walks through landscapes of green and gold.
On a recent foggy morning, this multicolored maple seemed to be lit from within.
Until a day or so ago, our Japanese maples blazed with a glorious red intensity.
Not to be outdone, other maples put on leaves of golden sunshine.
This ginkgo’s canopy of yellow has become a carpet of yellow, perhaps equally lovely.
My daughter, an inveterate leaf-tosser, celebrates the season amidst the fallen leaves of a sugar maple outside our church.
Kiko, basking in the November sun, is content to model a cap of pine straw.
Enjoy these final days of fall color! We may be in for an icy white winter!
