Too Early for Fall Colors

I came across this maple tree that has completely changed to its fall colors. Way too early – we usually don’t get fall colors until later in October. But this tree is a bit of an anomaly – it is the only one in the park that has changed color.

If you notice in the background, there is someone who was getting married in the park.

I liked how the the sun was backlighting these cattails.

  1. Some trees are like some people . . . they want to go to go to sleep early . . . and I was wondering about that figure even before you mentioned it.

    At first, I thought she had a baby carriage (stroller, in the modern vernacular) but it almost looks like a person on a scooter in front of her.

    Was there an actual wedding in the park or did she just forget to do the laundry?

      1. It certainly looks like a nice place for a wedding . . . it’s tempting to say the tree partook in the celebration . . . but it was probably just reacting to moisture loss.

I'd love to hear from you
