We have had nights down in the 40 degree range and days that stay in the 50s. That has been enough to push a few trees into their autumn color. We have had a lot of rain the last week and it was chilly and still misting rain today so the colors are muted. It was what I understand the Irish call a "soft" day. Nevertheless, here is a nice Sweetgum tree showing orange and yellow.
And here is a Red Oak still green with a frosting of deep red. It will be only a few weeks before they all put on their colors. When the sun comes out again I will take better pictures.
