In the morning when I come into the kitchen and see this view I really know that winter is coming.
Later these yellow leaves will turn golden and then russet, finally falling to leave the branches bare to let in the winter sun.
To those of you in colder climes this must seem very tame, but to me it is a joy and a special beauty. I love scooping up the leaves to bring into the house to use in my Thanksgiving decorations.
Thank you for visiting. I hope your day contains something beautiful.
