In the sunshine, against a brilliant blue sky, the fall colors seem to me to be at their peak now. The sunshine seems sharper in the fall than in the spring. A few leaves have come down, but there are swaths of yellow, orange, scarlet to be seen everywhere, with the occasional pop of green. It does seem strange to have leaves on the tree in November, and delphiniums and iris still blooming, but I am happy to see so much color still around me. I will miss seeing these colors on the drive home, now that it is dark.
