What a difference a week makes! This was the (somewhat narrow) view from my bedroom/office window about a week ago. Taken at sunset on an otherwise grey day, the sun made an appearance just long enough to set the top of the trees aglow.
This is the same tree taken (through a rain-dappled window) this morning. It’s a very windy, rainy day and those last leaves that so stubbornly cling to their branches will probably be gone by nightfall. That is the nature of Autumn, I guess.
