October has been particularly glorious in my part of Wisconsin. Here’s what it looked like late last week when I was walking from my home to the coffee shop about half a mile away.
Many of the trees are a variety of ash, like the one above; this view might not last long if the emerald ash borer moves in. The tree below is a buckeye, a personal favorite (easy for me to say; I don’t have to deal with all those prickly husks!)
While the north-south part of my walk looked like October, the view down a cross-street planted in Norway maples was completely different (below). Except for the gold against the curb, it could be the end of August!
…and looking south over the river.
