Where did summer go? Seems as if it was just yesterday we were celebrating our first warm day after a long, cold winter and my Japanese maple in my hubby's ole' truck is telling me fall is here and it won't be long till winter. I love it when the leaves turn here in Oregon. We have 2 more Japanese maples but they are both new and small so next year they will grace us with their beauty. When I left Penna. last week the foliage was just beginning....and when I got here I loved seeing the change in our scenery also.
