Whoever heard of having to wait and watch for signs of fall after a long summer, the way you wait and watch for signs of spring after a long winter?
On the other hand, it’s interesting to see fall unfold in super-slo-mo. Do we ever really notice how our most familiar trees go through the color-changing process, or are our lives usually too fast-paced to catch the subtleties?
Given a little more time, any tree can be brilliant. (This one is usually a dull gold but has decided to try shocking red this season.)
But this rose (in the foreground), which has decided to put out new leaves, is just crashing the party.
