Rusted

Red oak leaves “rusting” on the branch

Many years ago, Robin pulled a red oak sapling out of the woods and planted it at the edge of our front yard. It’s now about 25′ tall and one of the showcase trees on our property (despite being decapitated in 2014…) This time of year it’s leaves look like they’re rusting. They cling to the branches well into the winter with some not dropping until new leaves push out in the spring. There are quite a few dried leaves from last season still on the branches…

“F” is for Fern

A new fern curls to suggest its first letter

The ostrich ferns are unfurling along Fargo Brook. It wasn’t until I processed this image that I realized it suggested the letter “F”

Poke-o-Moonshine

Fall foliage is approaching peak color in parts of the Adirondacks. The view from the top of Poke-o-Moonshine was stunning the other day. Lake Champlain and the Green Mountains are visible along the horizon in this view to the southeast.

Last blush

The white hydrangea by our back patio puts on its final blush of the season

The hydrangea by our back patio has sported bright white flowers through the summer. These flowers have been a magnet for pollenators of many species. Now, as we enter fall, the flowers take on their pink blush before drying to light tan.

Apple Blossoms

Wild apple blossoms along Fargo Brook

It’s looking like another good year for wild apples this time around. Many of the wild trees on our property have had a great bloom. More cider in our futures!

Last fall’s maple leaf emerging from the ice

The ice along the edges of our pond is slowly receding. This maple leaf from last fall emerges…

Summer memory

A piece of dried hydrangea on fresh snow

A bit of a summer memory—this piece of dried hydrangea had been broken off by the weekend’s strong winds to cast its shadow on the fresh snow.

Lining up

The frequent rains have provided ample opportunity to study raindrops. The line up of droplets on the stem of this red maple leaf caught my eye from a distance and drew me right in.
