After all the cold weather from last week most of the leaves have fallen. It has been a lot of work raking but after such a lovely autumn it was worth it. I’ve even thought about jumping into the piles of leaves! Just before the weather changed I took some final pictures to remind me of how pretty autumn colors are. Here are some of my souvenir pictures from the last couple of weeks.
A few green leaves
Freshly fallen leaves
Lots of colors
There are still pumpkins for sale at a roadside stand. They are so cheerful.
Now it is time to look forward to the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving!
There are more colorful pictures here.
The leaves are just starting to change color in Virginia and this is happening later than I’ve been used to. Typically by this time the leaves have mostly fallen so I’m really enjoying the change. Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed that just one tree will have a few leaves that are yellow, orange or red. Everything else is still green.
slowly changing color…

still so much greenery

However it now looks like autumn colors have finally arrived! It is interesting to see the colors changing and I drove to an orchard in the mountains to pick apples and enjoy some fresh cider, as well as admire the season’s colors.
Autumn has arrived.
