Color Me Autumn (week one)

Color Me Autumn!

Suddenly, it is beginning to look like Autumn. Time to break out my “Color Me Autumn” tag and get out for some Autumn trail walks…My favorite season!

As soon as my dentist appointment ended this morning (Perfect report from the hygienist), I headed for the Arboretum. I don’t have time to write more tonight, but here are a few  pictures from today’s trail walk to show that Autumn colors are beginning to appear despite the predominately green leaves.

The evergreen is still green, but the ground beneath it looks like Autumn.

My favorite tree-the golden willow

The leaves on the golden willow tree will eventually turn yellow, but the transition is slow. Look around the tree, however, and you will see more Autumn colors.

Although the sugar maple is still mostly green, I can  tell Autumn is here.

Are you seeing Autumn in your neighborhood or are you saying goodbye to winter? Whichever season you are leaving (or entering), as you walk along the trail with your camera, you are sure to find something beautiful to photograph. Go on out and enjoy it whenever you can. That’s what I’m planning to do.

See you soon
Trail Walker.

  1. Just gorgeous Caroline and Autumn is my favorite season as well. There is a willow tree that I pass which I always admire as well. I’ve not seen too many tree colors yet in SE Michigan, but in the park where I walk, strangely enough, all the bushes and weeds along the water’s edge have turned a vibrant shade or red – some leaves are the color of poinsettia leaves.

      1. I went to Lake Erie Metropark this morning hoping to see some vibrant colors since the Park where I walk every day had a few beautiful trees that had already turned bright yellow and red. But that’s a 30-mile round trip for me and everything was still green. I was listening to the news later today and heard a report on the Fall cover and they said areas near Lake Erie are the last to change … guess I’ll wait until the end of October for another trip there.
