Red, Orange, Yellow Against the Canvas of Blue

I went to pick-up my granddaughter Grace to take her to see Malala, the film . (More about the film later. )   The trees in her front yard we breathtaking in the clear sunshine against the blue, almost clear sky.

Scott, her dad   has been making maple syrup in the early spring , catching the sap from these Maple trees.  The most colorful trees each fall, the red and orange are Maples.

Later in the afternoon, David and I went for a drive to “leaf peeping” as he calls it.  We went to the Colony Town Park which is a lovely nearby park.  The picturesque wooden bridge is not as quaint as the very old ones but still lovely.  We were walking down by the pond looking for the heron, to no avail.  The foreground is  imposing  pussy willows.

Oh the warmth of the color  warms the heart and a blessing it is,  this last gasp of summer   before the on slot of the cold, windy, snowy, and icy winter arrives!
