ABC Wednesday - M is for Maple Leaves



M is for Maple Leaves.............



red maple leaves in the autumn




The autumn colors in New England are in full swing right now.

When the sun comes out it lights up the leaves with a vibrant glow.

The red maple leaves are just beautiful as are the bright oranges and vivid yellows.

The full glory of these colors only lasts for a couple of days before they start fading away to the earthy browns.

Within another week, they will all be off the trees and waiting to be raked up in the yard.

We like to wait until they have dried up and are all crunchy - there's nothing like walking through them and listening to the swish and crunch beneath our feet.

They also smell really good too!




This is the third round of ABC Wednesday. If you would like to join in please visit this site for the details.

  14. We have maple trees on the hill in front of our cabin in British Columbia. They are quickly changing right in front of my eyes. They follow the creeks up the steep hillside. They look like red veins running through the green cedar and fir slopes. Thanks for sharing. I invite you to come see my "Margy's Mouse Mechanism". -- Margy
