The colors are starting, and some red oak are already quite brilliant, yet others will be coming on in this next week or two. The yellows of the birch and poplar are pretty next to the dark green of the pines. I rode with daughter Leah to a nearby town this morning and we stopped for a few pictures.
I'll have to take another picture of this tree next week so we can see the difference on that tree, and surrounding trees.
This hillside just starting.
We've had rain again almost every night is past week. Last night a slight frost, and when we get a good hard frost, the colors change fast. Hopefully the rain and wind won't ruin our colors this year.
I bought myself a $50 bike today at a rummage sale. Nothing fancy - no speeds etc. Just a plain bike like I had as a kid. It is a newer model, and the lady that sold it said she didn't ride it over 5 miles. I believe that because the rubber little stubbies are still on the tires! Now I will have to use the bike to prove to hubby that it just isn't going to sit in the garage!
These apples look so good. Wish this tree was mine so I could try to make some apple butter.
Wonder what kind of apples they are?
