Fall Colors

Now the various species of oaks are changing color; not as brilliant as the colors we've already seen, but still beautiful in a more restrained way. Then the fall colors will end, probably to be terminated by a storm bringing heavy rain and strong winds that strip the trees of their leaves.

Great selection of vibrant fall colours! It's been a good if brief time of year.
