Wordless Wednesday… the view from my walk

Today’s post is an ode to the beautiful colors I get to see almost every day when I walk in the neighborhood. My phone’s camera doesn’t do most of the shots justice, but that’s what I had today (and every day). The colors are just brilliant, and as I looked for the best trees, it was quite striking to observe the many different stages of “fall” from tree to tree. By tomorrow’s walk, everything will be changed, so I was thankful to catch today’s foliage.

The oak leaves don't have the best colors, but they usually yield the most satisfying crunch!

The fences here never get old.
