Looking down the hill from the front of the house.The hickory tree is yellow but the Japanese maple is just beginning to turn. The beech trees have lost the majority of their leaves and the oaks are still green with a little brown mingled into their canopy.
Trees at what we call the turn around. It is a sharp left turn down the drive.



Close up of the red leaves in the maple at the turn around. It has been so dry, that it seems as soon as the leaves turn, they fall off. The neighbors big maple was beautiful but the leaves are now almost gone. Some of our maples are still green with only the tops turning so far. We do have color but it is a far cry from the vibrant falls of yesteryear's.
The kitty justice is you catch your fall colors wherever you can.

Love the colors

The colors are beautiful. Colors out here are great but then it rains and knocks off the leaves. But there are lots of trees here also.

Your Redlin sky is a beauty. I like Redlin too.

I had Crab Fritters with aioli drizzle and chopped tomatoes, onion and something else on the side and a very different Mushroom soup. The dish was decorated very elegant also. Not crab cakes and not frittered as I imagined but round balls just larger than golf balls and just stuffed with crab---very tasty. MB

Thanks. I would love some rain to knock off our leaves. Nice to hear you like Redlin. Wow, the lunch sounds divine. Peace
