Red October

Red sugar maple among the green trees

We haven't had a frost on this ridge yet. The trees and woody vines are of different opinion on the fall color change.

Some of the sugar maples believe it is still summer, while others have turned, at least in part.

Red Virginia creeper leaves

The Virginia creepers are unanimous in their purple-shaded reds.

Red sumac leaf

The sumac is exploring color change, while the hawthorn has ripened its fruits yet remains green in the leaves.
