The leaves came down too quickly this year. What leaves we had left were unceremoniously ripped off the trees by the spectacular winds feeding hurricane Sandy.
No kidding. Here in southern Indiana, we were part of that storm when it hit land. Holy awesomeness of nature, Batman.
At any rate, I was not ready for October to go, so I saved these for today.
The lower red in the picture above is sumac - probably smooth, but could be staghorn sumac. The bees love it and it's so gorgeous when it turns in the fall.
Seriously, we live in a beautiful place.
This is the road to our cemetery. I love that little dip and jog. Our old roads dance through the hills.
