Color in "My Kingdom"
This post isn't profound, it's just what brought me the most joy today. I thought it wasn't going to be a very good color year. I've decided that the yellows aren't so good, but the reds and oranges are quite lovely. The picture above is trees across the railroad tracks with morning sun highlighting them.
As I walk over the hill toward the cemetery, this mulberry is one of the few trees on the hill that isn't a white pine.
Once I get to the cemetery, the colors are always stunning. I don't know if someone purposely chose which trees to plant 100 years ago, or if it's just chance, but there is always a variety of color- reds, oranges, gold.
This is my favorite. Doesn't it look peaceful?
OK, just for fun... how do you find an orange dog in the orange leaves?
