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.
