Fall Color Project 2010 … From The Front Deck

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.

The berry's cheek is plumper...

‘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 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.

The maple wears a gayer scarf...

Join in Dave’s 2010 Fall Color Project and showcase the autumn palette in your area!

  1. It’s interesting, isn’t it? In some spots, the colour is almost non-existent, but then suddenly you’ll come across a burst of luminous foliage like you’ve shown above. It’s got to do with weather, (and even the wind), but there’s some time yet for lots of colour.

  2. What a lovely view from your deck, Nancy. I agree the fall foliage this year is much more subdued, yet there is enough color to lift one’s spirits.

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
