    I was married in October, 1980. We had planned to take all of these stunning pictures outside amongst all of the color-I anticipated some beautiful shots but alas, it poured all day long, the leaves fell from the trees and no pictures were taken outside! But I still love October the best of all the months of the year. Such beauty you can’t describe you can only take in and enjoy!

    From my office window I can see a good-sized maple, ablaze in orange, now losing its top leaves. There’s a carpet of fallen leaves encircling the tree and the still-green grass spreads out along the hill below. I’m so happy to have that bit of foliage paradise outside my window.

    The show is winding down but here in Salem MA I still see signs of color. All along my street I have sugar maples that are late (for the season) and they are varying shades of gold/yellow, brown and green with a few mostly bare but many fully leafed… The show has been gorgous this year and now I make plans and can’t wait for next year…!!!

    As I write this – I`am looking out at Beautiful Fresh Pond on Block Island – Across the Pond from Me the Green is all gone except in the Middle of all this Brown and Grays is One Lonely Green Tree (A Pine I imagine) but all along the Pond on both sides are the Beautiful Winterberries and Bittersweet in all their Glory-it is truly a Picture that cannot be captured by Photographer or Artist. – “Then Who ?” – Nuff said.
