Time of Golden Light

The fall color has been particularly nice this year. I’ve enjoyed watching the changes from the back door as the silver maple in the back yard turned the light golden and the oak trees along the street behind us glowed a rusty red orange. The leaves fell gracefully over about a week and added their colorful accents to various places around the garden. The perennial garden started with some crisp, golden leaf edges and then added more to the warm piles of leaves on the ground. I harvested my lettuces and Asian greens and turned them into an autumnal spring soup. The back pavement was a yellow lake, and then I raked it all up before this week’s rain and lows in the 20’s hit. I’ll clean up the casualties this weekend.
