Festival of Leaves, October 27, 2013

My first “real” Festival of Leaves post went up a week ago yesterday. For the fifth week of the Festival, let’s see how my part of the world has changed in a week…

LeavesRedTop20131027This tree is beginning to change color – the top is red-orange, but the lower leaves are still green.

LeavesMaple20131027The maple tree from last week’s post is mostly orange, and starting to shed leaves noticeably.

LeavesPinOak20131027This pin oak has largely given up for the winter. It’s nearly bare, and the remaining leaves are all a dull tan.

LeavesWillowOak20131027But last week’s willow oak, growing about forty feet from the pin oak, is still nearly as green as the first time you saw it.
