An October Day - a little late!

This is the most beautiful tree in our yard.
It is an Autumn Flame Maple.
The leaves start turning their beautiful red around the first
of the year.
The fell off almost all at once
and were gone the day before Hallowe'en.
We planted 5 of these magnificent trees.
2 died the first year.
2 look so pitiful that we're planning to cut them down.
This one stands in all its glory.
What a beauty!

The last rose of summer!

Hydrangeas ready to be picked for fall arrangements.
Perhaps some to be sprayed gold to add to the
Christmas tree.

Have a great day!
