Autumn 2016 Colour Extravaganza!

Yes, it is that time of year: Autumn. This is a great time of year. It’s still warm enough you don’t need heavy coats and boots. On sunny days you can go outside in just a t-shirt and you won’t get eaten by bugs.

Oh yeah, and the colours. This is the time of year when the trees turn all sorts of lovely shades of red orange and yellow and various mixes there between. I’ve been taking some pictures so I can share this experience with you. Be fore warned, there are a lot of pictures.

First, let’s start with a little progression.

See this tree in the middle? Keep your eyes on it. This picture was taken Sep 20th, 2016.

Here is a wider shot so you can put it into perspective. The tree in question is above and to the right of the solar panels.

The next set of pictures are random wanderings around the property. I’m not going to comment on them all, so just enjoy.

Found this little guy growing on a stump and I couldn’t not take a picture of it.

These last few pictures are either from our road, or fairly close by.

As you can see, not all of the trees have changed yet. If you wait until all of the trees have changed colour, you will miss out on some of the early colours. Very rare indeed is the year when the vast majority of trees all change at the same time. You need to take advantage of the scenery while it is here.
