Maple leaf

Yes - the leaves are actually these colors --- not all - but at least one-third of our canopy has already changed leaf color and has begun dropping leaves.

We've had several days of cooler nights, and last night a good soaking rain ..coupled with the last years and the last few months of drought, this fall promises to be mighty early.

I sketched these quickly before the grands got up in the morning ...

C has his jam today and we've company for dinner ...another busy time ...

Hope your day is terrific!

Oh my goodness; this looks like a photograph -- so detailed and the color is breathtaking. Lin you amaze me with the way you switch from style to style so effortlessly. Autumn is my favorite time of year and I can never be satisfied with anything I create with autumn colors. But you have outdone yourself. Bravo.
