Muddy colors

Fall is slowly coming to Western North Carolina. I don't think the trees are ready to give up their summer color just yet. I love how the tips of a branch will be bright red or yellow while the rest of the tree is stoic green. We drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway the past weekend to see the colors in the higher elevations. The day was overcast. Even along the parkway there was lots of green in the landscape. The yellow, red, golds were there, but muted. I think the long drought has had an effect on the fall colors, too.

Our poor pond is still a muddy puddle. At least there is some water for the wildlife.

I hope you enjoyed your drive home- the colors are stealing out again- hope our snowfall hasn't caused them to drop, but I am so lovin' that we have one early.
