I love the colors of autumn!

Mountain Ash in fallThe mountain ash is showing off its fall colors.  It’s brilliance stands out against the drab sky shrouded by low valley cloud.  This year the birds ate most of the mountain ash’s berries during the past couple of months, which is unusual.  Normally, the berries stay on the tree until springtime when swarms of cedar wax wings fly into the tree and clean off all the berries. If you happen to be standing close to the tree when they fly in you can hear the thunderous flapping of their wings. It’s quite a show!
