Photos: Autumn Leaves 2018

This past week, we have been experiencing uncommonly warm and sunny weather for mid October. And so I took the opportunity to drive around and admire the fall colours in the area. Of course, I also took some photos, which you can see below:

Agnes maple tree

Agnes, the maple tree, in full autumn glory. I raised Agnes from a seedling I found in my parents’ driveway 35 years ago. This is what she looks like today.

Peppermint sundae

Because it was warm, I also stopped at an ice cream parlour that was still open and had this tasty peppermint sundae.

    Nice! The trees are just starting to turn here in New Jersey – they’re a bit late, I think.

      Glad you like the photos. I’m actually glad that the trees have any leaves left, considering that we had an extremely dry summer over here.
