The last of fall colors

The ravine woodland forest continues to be luminous, with yellows and spots of red.  But the freeze last night, and the cold temperatures to come, will be the final push.  The ginkgo in front, again, is slowly losing its leaves (quite unusual) -- the abscission layers haven't been triggered for the leaves to drop all at once, as is normal.

I need to check again on the venerable old ginkgo in the neighborhood.  Last year, just after Thanksgiving, it was amazing. Leaves drifting down, instead of dropping all at once, is a difference with weaker abscission layers, I guess.

The view from my studio (on the ground floor) has been lovely, as has been the view out the kitchen windows.
