In Mid Fall

The patchy frost was not. Fall continues uninterrupted. It is past peak now on the low spot. The trees are getting bare in places.

While other places bloom on.

Groups of trees are at peak and 40 feet away there is near nakedness.

It is only by accident that Uncle Ernie is so welled coordinated for autumn. Those colors were some of the leftover paint samples I had on hand.

The plumbing box was fully closed and re-caulked today. Then I ran out of energy. Now it needs a touch up job on the paint. The permanent hose bib protection will have to wait for another day.

A reddish orange tree against a clear deep blue sky on the finest of days in the Carolinas.

You can see in the background, Hebo mountain across the scenic byway is getting thin.

There are a lot of nooks and crannies in the mountains out there and plenty color still abounds.

It's amazing what one can see when the trees are loosing their skirts. Beautiful blooms. Uncle Ernie sure looks dapper in his new attire. It sure is pretty there.
