The Last of the Gold


My beautiful European copper beech tree at the height of its glory this fall.




and a surprise !

The wind must have circled around the bottom of the steps to create this genuine crop circle of Silver Maple leaves !

    1. Hi Carolyn, I do wait for the copper beech to turn every year. It is the last of my fall colour. It is also the last of the leaves to rake up.

    1. Thanks Beth. I confess to waiting until the light was right.

  4. Alais that beautiful fall color is so fleeting! Interesting crop circle Patty. I guess the smooth texture of the rock makes it easy for the wind to blow any leaves clear.

    1. You are right Jennifer, as I have waited for the beech to turn gold I will wait for my peonies in the spring.

  5. I enjoyed your golden photos. I made mention in a recent post how beautiful are the trees in Ontario. Our area does have some special Autumn colors. I have not been as far as Toronto though.

    1. There are many beautiful views of autumn trees in Ontario, especially north of Toronto. I try to make it one of our conservation parks to see the colour every year. This year I did not though.
