Last year by the start of the second week of Fall one could clearly see that this was going to be a dramatic and colorful show. First, the maples and sumac were putting on the ritz with a color sheen and shine everywhere. Going for a morning jog along the side roads had new pleasing vistas and a crispness in the air. Meeting with friends, one heard “did you see the wood glade by Glover’s farm – such a burst of bright color this Fall. Much better than last year…”
A full gamut of hues early in the season.
But what added to the rich hue weaving across the Warkworth countryside was a denser floral,vine, and small bush display of riotous colors. See, for example the bold colors among the bush edges of the Codrington Cemetery in slideshow below.
In sum, by the second week of Fall we knew we were going to have a treat this autumn and it would be anything but austere. See the full screen version of the above Fall slideshow here.
