Local color

Fall happens. Even while we have been enjoying some nice days, the leaves are doing their thing. More and more of the vineyard parcels are turning various shades of yellow, orange, and red. The leaves on our red maple trees are going orange and are beginning to fall to the ground. Some of the plum trees around us are now deep red.

The vineyards around us have all been harvested. Now the leaves will put on a show.

And now, it seems, our nice days are changing into more fall-like days. On Friday, I wore shorts and a tee-shirt. That will be unlikely today; a weather system moved through over night bringing rain showers and lower temperatures. We should still have some nice days here and there during October, and I hope we do. There's more work to be done outdoors.


  1. We've been to the garden center and have more planting to do on our terrace. Much more basic than what you do. I miss the gardens, but I'd be complaining after one week.

  2. mitch, whatever the scale, it's usually fun to dig in the dirt.

  3. Fabulous color. Can't wait for more.

  4. I always enjoy your fall photos.


Tell me what you think!
