Just when it seemed this fall would be a dud, colors started appearing October 15th. Then each day brought new highlights. And then much needed rain enhanced the subtle reds, oranges and yellows.

The early morning fogs adds another bit of beauty to this view.

My cat steps on the rocks to avoid the wet grass. It’s past the middle of October but the garden still has tomatoes, peppers, kale, turnip and mustard greens, many herbs, beets, onions, and a struggling squash plant.

This view off the side of my deck shows some vibrant colors up close.

The morning sun turns this tree golden,

At the end of October the color still delights.

And this picture was taken November 15th. The Japanese maple always provides an array of color in fall and spring.
