October beauty starts gently, with the ash trees, their subtle colours making the trees seem mysteriously lit from within. Brighter, bolder scarlets and golds appear as the maples and birches get into the scene. Oh, we know the siren leaves are beckoning us into winter, making endings look beautiful, but the brilliance is also a promise of beginnings yet to come. And remember, when all the leaves are fallen we can see further, to the distant hills.
