poetry and prose about place

the colour of October #2 – Red Oak

with 6 comments

Our leaves have reached the ‘world on fire’ stage.  We took a drive along the St. John River to our cabin yesterday and were immersed in reds, oranges and yellows.  I particularly like the Red Oak leaves.  They lag behind the Red Maple –  some are still green.  But a few younger trees show vermillion and orange and purple to rival the maple.
