The fall colors of the timber have been absolutely spectacular this year. There was one or two days when they were at the peak of color. I was driving home from work last Wednesday and they were just so brightly colored and beautiful it was hard to concentrate on driving so I had to stop several times to just look at all the colors. There were so many pretty colors, orange, red, dark red, rust, yellow, school bus yellow, bronze, brown, green and everything in between.
They are still beautiful now, but time has already muted the colors some and the rain and wind we got last week stripped a lot of the trees of their leaves. The trees in my yard have hardly turned colors yet, they are mostly still green, but it is just a matter of time, of course.
