MID OCTOBER

I’m happy to be outside on these bright clear October days, watching trees shed chlorophyll and revert to their true colors ahead of winter. Sourwoods are showing the most color in shades ranging to bright red, but there is a slow fade to many other trees: a maple with its tips dappled in orange, a silvering ash, a lineup of dogwoods in muted shades of orange and red.  By the time the hills above Lake Jocassee are evidently colorful, these particular leaves will have been swept away by the winds of change, and among all the russet and yellow and gold I’ll point to these trees which have already shed their leaves, and speak longingly of how pretty they were.
