First color of fall

This leaf was right outside our back porch last weekend.  We are returning this next weekend with the grandson and his parents, but renting a private cabin instead.  Full kitchen, sleeps 10.  It is an A-frame with the bedrooms upstairs.  I'm sure the grandson will enjoy going up and down the stairs (he's 3...).  Oh, and it has a back deck, so he and I can feed the blue jays.  I'll have to buy PLENTY of peanuts!

  1. Thank Heavens!!! And strange as it is, we have had temps in the 70's 80' and 90's for several days and supposed to continue until Sunday. Does this mean Arizona's long national summer sunshine is over? YES!

  2. If you ever stop at Spring Crest off Hwy 74 at the old abandoned Gas Station that must still be there, park your car and look up at Santa Rosa Mountain. You'll see the brightest yellow you've ever seen up there. You'd swear they were Aspen, but they are not.

    The area is a spring where the water Company (believe it or not - Desert Water Agency) has their well and holding tanks. The trees are actually Modesto Ash or otherwise called Arizona Ash or Velvet Ash. You may also view these brightly coloured Fraxinus velutina if you drive up to Trails End on Morris Ranch Road from Garner Valley's Hwy 74. They will be in the Arroyo on the right side driving up.

  3. We felt a real fall nip in the air this morning. It is a time of change to be sure.
