This fall has been particularly beautiful, and luckily, most of my trees turned. I took these photos of the leaves on Tuesday morning before a very cold storm swept in and knocked most of the leaves off the trees. These are trees in my front and back yards that I planted for color, and this is one of the big reward years. (Sometimes the hard freezes hit before the trees have turned and just freeze them on the limbs, brown and crinkly.) The colors are part of the reason I love fall. And then there is the late blooming poppy. There were three buds and this one made it before the freeze.
