The abundant russet tones are a clear sign that the end of autumn is near. The rusty colors of the oaks, the last to go, now dominate.
The organization of fallen leaves has begun in earnest. There will be several weeks of organizing leaves ahead.
Fall will finish as the first real frost heads this way. There is even a chance for a touch of snow. But this is 30's cold not 20's cold so autumn won't come to a crushing end.
I will be organizing leaves and putting the beds down for winter
As the last of the leaves fall from the forest trees.
A new season rushes towards us.
