Seasonal Renewal

I woke up the morning expecting the trees to be completely stripped by the sustained 40+ mph winds we had in the region yesterday. Much to my surprise, the fall colors are brighter than ever. It seems all the softwood trees (like cottonwood) had their dull brown and tan leaves knocked off. Now only the deep greens, Reds, yellows, and scarlets are left.

It’s like the whole season has been renewed.

I think it is time to harvest the Honey Crisps apples and pick up some pumpkins… It’s hayride time again!

One thought on “Seasonal Renewal

  1. Wonderful that the winds didn’t strip your glorious, fall colours. That happened to us two years back in late August when we had an early fall starting. A big storm hit and gusty rain for over a week. By the time it was over with, the trees were bare. No Autumn splendour in September and October. Winter hit in early November and a layer of snow finally matched the bare trees.
