We don’t here. At least not in terms of broadleaf trees changing color.

Sure, a few saplings here and there have turned, though often only in just a few branches. But most of the large broadleaf trees are only turning a light green if they’re changing at all.

Today the sun shone on the hilltops in the afternoon, and I noticed a few splashes of fall color near timberline. To me it seems about a month late for that. Maybe fall comes later here than I’m used to.

It’s cooler. It’s windier. The summertime sunlight is certainly gone (which one would expect on the equinox). All that is nice — but I’d love some fall in the trees as well.

Fall always feels so magical to me. I would hate to miss it here.
