Almost Autumn

2019_10_01__Holden Arboretum_0026
Today’s temperature hovered around 90 degrees as I headed out for a trail walk in Holden Arboretum. Although most of the trees along the trail are still green, a few, like the beauty above, are definitely announcing the arrival of Autumn. Am I looking forward to cooler temperatures? You bet I am! Hands down, Autumn is my favorite season, and I’m anticipating some colorful trail walks during October…and into November.

Here are the first pictures for my Autumn album:

And finally, one of my favorite trees: the sugar maple. Every year, I photograph the transition of this magnificent tree from summer into autumn and eventually winter. Here’s the first picture, still dressed in green garb, but preparing for the dramatic change coming in the months ahead.

That’s it for week one of this year’s Autumn Album. If you are a trail walker who loves Autumn, come back next week when I will share more Autumn images.

See you soon!

  1. The first touches of Autumn – the butterfly is beautiful. I’ve seen more Monarchs than usual this year it seems – that’s a good thing! I remember last year, you took one pic of the Sugar Maple, then went back to take another picture and found many leaves off. It’s pretty warm here today – I’m betting you have the same dramatic temps … here in SE Michigan we broke the old record set in 1897 of 88 degrees by hitting 89. Thursday we may need our long johns.
