The Last Dance of the Red Maple

Now that most of the leaves are gone and the morning frosts have arrived, I’m really enjoying all of the photos I took of the autumn leaves.

The colors have been spectacular in our area.
Brilliant reds, rich oranges and rust, vibrant greens and golden yellows!

I thought that for today I would share photos of one of my favorite trees (at least my favorite for now!).

We have this red maple tree which puts on an amazing show every spring and fall.

While I enjoy it in the spring because of the promise of warmth and new growth,
the fall colors really stand out against the grass and changing leaves on the nearby trees!

I hope you enjoy the red maple’s last dance for 2009 as much as I have.
Happy Friday!
