Where the Red Is

These maples along Mill Street still have green leaves in October, when many other maples are gold and orange and scarlet, but by Election Day their color is brilliant, as seen above. Look closely at the red below, however, and you will see tiny streaks of something white. Yes, there have been snow flurries this week, and we will be seeing a lot of white in the weeks and months ahead.


  1. Love the red. We planted a couple of maples in the yard that will turn red in the fall....if the deer don't destroy them first. We had snow yesterday too! The first real snow, though it almost immediately melted, of the season. I am trying to be accepting of it. Trying.

  2. Having the ground covered with snow will be a bit of a jolt the first time it happens. I'm looking forward to January first, however, when all the various hunting seasons are over and I don't have that anxiety about being out and about in the woods and fields with Sarah. Also, snow is good for tracking, and I'd like to get better at that.

  3. I Love Red on the Trees. It's so Pretty.
