This maple tree sits in our front yard. This October, the tree fairly glowed with its brilliant yellow leaves. To its right were some trees with bright orange leaves which set it off perfectly.
I took this photo on a Friday and texted it to the family, especially to our son and his wife who now live in Florida and miss the changing of the seasons.
Several days later, I took the photo below of that same tree. Not a trace of yellow in sight.
Even though we love the seasonal changes, wouldn't it be nice to have these colors stay for a while longer, say two or three months? Not asking too much I don't think, and it would make November much easier to enjoy!
