Fall foliage, 2017

This is a practice in observation. Discerning the changes around us, with the changing weather and temperature.

I returned to the Chinqua-Penn Walking Trail to snap most of these shots.

11052017 redbud
Redbud, Cercis canadensis. On the farm. This is the form the redbud takes when it has been coppiced, or cut from the base. This is mostly one-year growth. Rather than take it out completely from the cultivated rows, numerous specimens been coppiced, so this form is common throughout the market garden.

I am struck by the ongoing contrast between the greens on one hand, and the maroons, yellows, and russets on the other. Photo taken in a small grove south of the market garden.
