Autumn

It is slowly becoming apparent that we are not going to have the iconic sort of vivid New England autumn that fuels us for living through an equally iconic but interminable New England winter. Between being drowned by incessant rain (the sixth rainiest year in recorded history) and battered by storms, most of the maple trees that haven't had their leaves stripped by wind are turning a dispirited yellow or brown. These in our side yard are an exception.

  7. Hi Bobbi,
    The leaves seem to be not so bright this year. Ours I think if from a lack of water during the summer months. Have a great day!

  8. They are hard to find in our area too. Glad you found some colorful ones to shoot for the theme.
