Mrs Bale talks about fall color
To quote Van Morrison, today truly is a "golden autumn day." This has been such a beautiful fall so far. Much sunshine, and the most remarkable color. Around here, we talk about "peak" color a lot, but I've come to feel it is all peak. It just depends where you look. You might see a stand of red maples in September and know they are as beautiful as they can be. Then the red becomes muted, and we see orange and yellow, and the rusty color of the oaks. This goes on for weeks if we are lucky and the rain and winds don't take away the leaves too quickly.
