Last of Fall

Boy, the last few days have been glorious with temperatures in the 70's with sun and blue skies. Judy and I went to Spencer on Tuesday to meet my sister. We had scheduled a carpet cleaning for Grandma Great Meads. Her carpets have not been cleaned thoroughly since Mom built the house in the fall of 1996.The Stanley Steamer folks arrived around 9 and had finished by 11. Grandma Great stayed Tuesday night with sister Judy so that the carpet could dry. We traveled back to Glenville that evening. Yesterday we traveled over the winding road to Spencer so we could help reestablishing the furniture. The house carpet looks great.

Today I took these pictures because the reds this fall have been so vibrant. This Japanese maple was glowing in the sun and was speaking to be photographed.

Acer palmatum, called Japanese Maple or Smooth Japanese Maple is a species of woody plant native to Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Cina, eastern Mongolia, and southeast Russia. Many different cultivars of this maple have been selected and they are grown worldwide for their attractive leaf shapes and colors. They are highly sought after and are relatively costly trees given their size.

It will not be long before these crimson leaves will be history. I am not complaining - just realizing how important cycles are in our world and our lives.
