First Touches of Fall

The transitional time when fall color just begins to touch the world always seems like such a magical time. While all seasonal changes are striking, there is something about the warm reds, yellows, oranges, and browns slowly taking over the cool greens of summer that is especially remarkable.

I love the brilliant yellow of this leaf, especially the way it contrasts with the green veins that are still showing.

The leaves are just starting to fall. There will be a lot of raking to do soon.

This little fellow lives at the end of our driveway. As you can see, he enjoys the black walnuts that fall from the tree there. We leave them on the ground for him to stock up on for the winter.
