The Leaves are Falling

What a warm day we had today----warm by October's standards, that is. Temperatures in the 50's felt quite toasty as we worked outdoors today. The winds picked up this afternoon and the rain has returned, and the leaves from our Sugar Maples are falling swiftly.

As we mentioned earlier, the autumn colors were not quite as vibrant this year as they usually are; nevertheless, the leaves are still a myriad of autumn-y shades, ranging from bright gold to peach to rusty red, and some brilliant oranges as well.
