The colors are just beginning to glow brilliantly as in the reflection I caught in the water yesterday during an afternoon trip down a local river.
As you can see with the photo of my dog (who hates cameras), not all the trees have given up on summer. But some have and they are beautiful. The river was beautiful, the weather warm, the mosquitoes at take out were terrible and the fishing wasn't much (I caught only one fish, but I didn't spend a lot of time fishing).
I had to get gas today and it was $2.95 a gallon, a good 60 or 70 cents cheaper than my last fill-up. Of course, I have a large tank and when I'm not driving out of town, I can go several weeks between fill-ups! As good as it was to see gas back below 3 bucks, it doesn't make up for the hit my retirement accounts have taken.
Life here continues to be busy... Hopefully, someday soon, I'll have the time and motivation to write more stories. Until then, or at least over the next few weeks, I'll post photos of the fall colors.
I've done this post many times including this trip last spring, when the redbuds were in bloom.
