"The clump of maples on the hill,
And this one near the door,
Seem redder, quite a lot, this year
Than last, or year before;
I wonder if it's jest because
I Love the Old State more!"
David L. Cady, October in Vermont

PLACE: Front yard
SUBJECT: Red sunset maple tree
The weather forecast calls for rain on Saturday and that very well might be the end of the beautiful foliage. So, instead of chancing it, I decided to post the monthly tree photo a few days earlier this month as I’m afraid that if I wait until the 26th, all of the leaves will have fallen from the branches. We’ve had a beautiful October this year; cool mornings, warm afternoons and plenty of sunshine - the best kind of fall days.
