TIME:  6:39 PM
PLACE:  The front yard
SUBJECT:  Red sunset maple leaf

Today really felt like fall.  The air was wonderfully cool and crisp.  On my morning drive to work, I noticed that many of the trees that line my route are getting ready shed their green hues and and put on their colorful fall show.  In our front yard, the edges of our maple tree’s leaves are starting to become red.  I enjoy the blaze of colors that fall brings.
