Leaves In Transition

After some too-hot October days, autumn is finally here. In the Appalachian Mountains, north-facing shrubs and trees have started exchanging their wardrobe of summer greens for autumn hues. I love this oh so brief moment, when we can enjoy every color, all at once, and really study the details. Some leaves resist the change, some have lost the chlorophyl in all but their veins, and others have committed to the blazing reds that will carry them on a breeze, down into the valley below.
