The trees have been beautiful this year, even with the strange, dry weather. There is still a lot of color in the woods. And piles of sweet-scented leaves crunching underfoot.
This time of year you can see the season changing daily, and a walk along the trail is an adventure!
I can’t stop taking photos of this gorgeous little maple in the yard at the cabin.
On the left side of this photo you can also see the little pine tree that Gramma Shirley rescued in 1994. She cut back the brush and pulled the weeds around the tiny tree so it could get some light, air & water. It has grown into a sturdy young pine, ready to stand tall for another 100 years or more! Mom also helped me transplant a couple other small pines that year, and they are also doing great. Thanks, Mom!
It’s not boring along the trails this time of year. Keep your eyes open for fall treasures!
Seriously, no color here yesterday! Thrilling and chilling at the same time, am I right?
