  • Festival of Leaves 2021

    This year we have had many autumn days of above average temperatures and I have enjoyed those. There has also been quite a bit of rain and cloud on those warmer days. At least that is how it seems to me. The autumn colors are somewhat muted this year with fewer reds and bright oranges.…
