Fall Colors

The picture’s a tease. It was taken last October, so think of it as a hint of things to come. But the hints were there aplenty this morning on my bike ride along the riverside trail – little sprinklings of single yellow leaves on the cottonwoods. We’re still in summer, but it’s not quite full blown any more. The thunderstorms last night were all monsoony (that’s summer) but there’s a cooler edge to the air. Maybe it’s a subtle smell – too subtle to notice, but working on the subconscious? And those bits of yellow.
