Due to the big swings of temperatures this fall, the foliage came quite late and irregularly. It was not until Thanksgiving that I could observe some wide spread beautiful fall colors. I noticed that my block actually had the best foliage around our subdivision from jogging around the community on Thursday to Saturday mornings - Thanksgiving week.
On Sunday morning, Lily and I went out to exercise and to capture some autumn splendor.
It was a sunny, crisp Sunday.
Standing in front of our house, we took in the splendor of autumn right in our own yard.
On the right, the golden yellow leafs just brightened a few more shades over night; on the left a mocking bird was sunbathing in the evergreen tree full of red fruit.On the west side of the house, the tree leafs displayed layered colors of red.
Looking down street, a huge volume of bright yellow stood out in the block. It looked golden when I took a picture of it in back light.
Walking down the street, I checked on the persimmon tree in a neighbor's yard - I took some beautiful pictures of matured persimmons there several years in a row. This year it showed me its peculiar side, it had 4 pairs of double persimmons - each pair like twins joined at bottoms! I have never seen this before
Looking back at the direction of my house, under direct light, I saw this contrasting and complimenting colors under the blue sky.
Instead of the usual route of jogging in our community, we went to a neighboring community in hope of capturing some different feels of Autumn. It was a good decision. An older community than ours, and more matured trees, a distinctive feeling there was that the streets were full of autumn splendor!
