The weather has been spectacular lately. In fact, too nice for the trees to develop their maximum fall foliage color. Warm days AND nights mean the color is less intense, develops very slowly and out of synchrony with other trees, and then leaves fall before the whole tree has even completed its color change. Oh well, the scenery is still something to marvel at, as we slowly approach the dreaded winter deep freeze.

Trumpeter Swans are on the move; soon the ducks will be too.
