Flaming Fall leaves: the only good kind of fire here.
Thank you, Fire Fighters for keeping Mariposa safe the  rest of the year!

  3. Hi Esther!
    I suppose if the Fall display went on for more than a week or two my eyes would begin smoldering in their sockets, and this from just a few small trees in my garden! Yesterday my work took me into Yosemite Valley and hundreds of giant old Maples, cottonwood, and Black Oak, all a-golden and lit up by the sun. Talk about being overwhelmed!

    I loved seeing your Fall colors too. I'm going to look for one of those pretty yellow smoke trees!

  9. Your kind of fire is the best kind...I'm always happy to see the end of our fire season. The white roses are stunning against the firey leaves. Our Black oaks are golden now, here and across on the mountain, and the Oracle oaks just now turning a vibrant yellow. Also, the poison oak....hee, hee!

  10. Hi again Sue!
    It really is a great year for yellow leaves. Even things that are usually more red turned orange and yellow. Wonder why? You're very lucky to have Black oaks. I'm not sure which is the Oracle oak, Poison oak is a whole other story. It's a plant I'm painfully aware of.
