After several days of wind and heavy rain, most of the leaves have now fallen off Lexington’s trees. But we did enjoy one of our more colorful autums this year.

There was brilliant early color, mixed in with still-green trees. Then, one day, it seemed like all the late-changing trees had suddenly turned bright orange, red, or yellow. And we were even fortunate enough to have day after day of bright sunshine and blue skies — which can really make sugar maples and ginkgos shine. Then came the wind, and there were deep piles of fallen leaves to kick through, and still there was color on some of the trees.

Somehow, I managed to get photos only of yellow trees and missed the red ones and the orange ones, but I hope you enjoy this last little bit of fall color anyway.
