One more beautiful day

I don’t know how many more days like this one will come our way before this wonderful season ends, but I’m guessing it won’t be many. Therefore, this week I am going to share a series of posts from today’s visit to the Holden Arboretum. The fall colors are past their prime, but they are still glorious. Here is today’s gallery:

I am puzzled by the beautiful color of the sugar maple tree. Do you remember the sugar maple tree I posted last week that was completely bare. The one in today’s gallery is just a short distance down the trail from that bare one. It’s an enigma to me why one is bare this week and the other still in full color. I even went back to check the signs under the trees to see if I had the species wrong, but they are both sugar maples, the source of yummy maple syrup. I can’t explain it, but maybe someone can. If I find out, I will let you know. 🙂

“Nuff said for today. The pictures really speak for themselves. I hope you enjoy them. Thanks for joining me along the trail today. If you love fall like I do, come back tomorrow to see the second in this series of posts.

  1. Wow, beautiful trees, I have norway maples for a long time I thought they were sugar maples, but a tree guy said no. they have same leaves but the bark is more corky shallower bark then sugar maples. the sugar maples are prettier then norway in that norway maples are more yellow while the sugars are more red orange.

  2. Such beautiful trees and colors! That last photo is simply stunning. I think some trees lose their leaves faster if they are exposed to the cold earlier or longer. The one near the water may have been kept warmer. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. 🙂
