We dipped into temps in the 40's this week, BRRRR! Not unheard of, frost has been recorded as early as September in these Ozark hills. In fact it was 28 degrees at Mom's house at Lead Hill in September 1989!
I'm not worrying about that right now, I'm just enjoying these glorious Fall days. The sun makes the water look like diamonds...
My drive to town changes every few days with more reds and yellows and oranges!
The sumacs turn a burgundy red signaling to the deer that cold weather is not far off.
Our dogwoods are the first trees to change color. Some of them got very stressed during the 100 degree days in August and have already dropped their leaves.
This one gets special treatment since it's next to our patios on the east side of the house. I water the hostas and ferns daily here and the dogwood shows it appreciation!
The best indication that Fall is here...I can see the lake again!
