Fading Glory

Soon, we will be into November.  The leaves will all be off of the trees, and the skies will be dull and grey.  But, October is still here, and, with it, days of golden sunlight, and bright pastels.  Here is my neighbor's Maple tree, still holding on to its bright yellow color.
And, my hydrangeas, once covered with blue and pink flowers, are now a faded green.  I like the contrasting shades.
I took a walk in the Great Meadow yesterday.  I have to go to the track this morning, so I don't have time to go through all of the pictures, and chronicle my journey.  I'll put that up tomorrow.

You are going to have to let us know how the track was today. Has there been any more luck in finding home for the horses?
Love the colors of Fall. Mother nature sure knows how to put on a color show.

Beautiful tree. This weekend our clocks go back, so we will be officially into winter.

Gorgeous tree! Not much glory here, lots of missing leaves though.
