Fall’s first blush

This has been a warm fall, so the colors are a tad behind schedule. I hope the leaves don’t all suddenly go brown and fall off. Color foliage is the only thing that makes falls bearable, especially considering the prospects of yet another crappy winter.

I came a way a bit disappointed today at the Nature Realm (happy to see they finally came to their senses and stopped calling it “Naturealm”) in the valley, although there were a couple of interesting images to be found; beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder.

And without further ado or unnecessary blathering:

Red!

Red!

Fuzzy

Old yeller

Milkweed

Milkweed. Apparently it can be toxic if eaten. So no milkweed for you!

And now for a moment of reflection.
