I don't have much time today, but I wanted to share something that gives me great joy every autumn -- this indigenous sugar maple in our back yard. The colors this year are more subdued than in years past (not enough rain) but still breathtaking. Sometimes the warm light appears to be emanating from the leaves themselves and you can practically hear the tree humming with energy. It's a stunning effect. I love the contrast of the fiery orange with the fresh light green. The photo above was taken yesterday, and the photo below was taken today:
You can see what a difference a day makes. Don't blink -- catch the beauty in your neck of the woods!
