Fall's Final Fling?

 
This year the colors here have definitely been less varied than some years. I thought that certain trees would always turn certain colors, but this has been proven not a sure thing this year. The line of trees that form the edge of the cemetery is almost pure yellow this year. Other years there's always at least been orange, if not pure red.

I love the way the maples glow behind the red pines.

The cemetery itself is pure gold.

Of course, there's the "standard" Civil War memorial, but I like it better with the colorful backdrop.

I'll take the yellow for the few more days it will last. As much as I enjoy winter, somehow I'm not quite ready this year.

In other news: Finished mowing the yard. More outlining and wrote a chapter of DMS Mistletoe. Packed the car for tomorrow (no big deal).

Interesting. I always thought the same thing that certain trees would turn certain colors.
The cemetery looks pretty bathed in gold

I've observed the same lack of color in our fall foliage.
