Here's a drastic change. I hinted at this post on Friday. Again, here's how the maple tree near our dining room windows looked on October 1.
Here's the same tree exactly 3 weeks later.
It's amazing that a tree can go from mostly green to completely leafless in just 21 days. After the big blow we had last week, we don't have many leaves left on the trees in the Keweenaw, but we still saw some color on the way to church on Sunday, October 22.
And when we got home that evening, the setting sun was lighting up this tree on our property like it was on fire.
I wish the camera could have captured how beautiful it really looked. Mr. Cut Off said it reminded him of the glistening ice in the trees during our ice storm last spring.
All is well in the Keweenaw.
