March 2014: The Children Are Tender
Friday, October 6, 2017
There isn't much color in the fall trees in our part of Kansas, not yet. Even our red maple that is usually a blaze of crimson by now seems to be waiting, withholding judgment; is it really Autumn? We usually have blazing heat and little if any rain in July and August, but this year the temperatures were moderate, and we received needed rain right on schedule; maybe more moisture than usual has discouraged the usual scarlets and golds of October? But, as the photos above show, there's beauty nonetheless.
