About time we got some fall colors. Last few years have been disappointing.

Pix of Sunday, taking a break to do some fishing up in Hamilton. Just makes a beautiful day all the better catching dinner to cook on the coal stove! ;)

I'm guessing we are running about 2 weeks ahead of the normal schedule for fall colors here.

Yup. Ties in with William's weather reports that showed early colder weather for September.

I'm presently experiencing a different fall color. White!!!! We appear to be right on the southern edge of it. North of here is experiencing much more of it.

Nice pictures.

Nearly all the leaves in my area have fallen and/or blown away; most trees are bare.
