But last weekend, I realized there's a lot of leaves turning right here in my own neighborhood. And things were at their peak.
Such as this lovely maple tree in my backyard. Wonderful brilliant red leaves!
So I grabbed my camera and decided to document our neighborhood in its full fall glory.
Roger had left his ladder nearby, so I used it to get up close and personal with the tree.
Our neighbor's trees were fast losing leaves. They made a lovely yellow carpet on the ground.
Just around the corner from my house is the most wonderful bush. During the year it's just another green spot in the yard. But come fall, it erupts in several different shades of yellow, orange and red.
It's like looking inside a kaleidoscope. Photo subjects abound!
Look at this - red, orange and yellow - all in the same branch.
And finally, a photo of my most favorite fall tree of all. The neighbor lady across the street has this huge tree that turns a mixture of hues in autumn. When the sun hits its leaves, the tree blazes with color.
This weekend I've noticed already the colors are beginning to fade. A rainy and windy weather pattern has blown many of the trees bare. The autumn color show here is a quick but glorious flash in the pan. Catch it while you can!
