The colour this fall hasn’t been as spectacular as in other years, and unfortunately, I haven’t gone hunting for it yet, but this morning — grey and hazy as it is — I thought I would post a few photos, taken from the front deck, of the paint daubs of Autumn’s palette I see just a few feet away. I’ll make this my meagre contribution to Dave’s 2010 Fall Color Project.

‘Autumn’ by Emily Dickinson
The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
