Right on schedule, nights stretch longer between dusk and dawn. A chill air swirls around warm sunshine. November 1 begins the peak leaf color season on Lake Jocassee, according to me, and not a day earlier, and color will last for weeks to come.  The deliciously scary (and thankfully short) Halloween season is here, with its traditional icon, the silhouette of a bare, leafless tree. Imagine taking a rubber band and twisting it around the base of your finger, tight, cutting off circulation until your finger falls off. Ghoulish. That’s what trees do… cutting off circulation to their leaves until the leaves fall off. And while they’re slowly losing life support, leaves display their most passionate colors. ~K
