Just scroll down through this blog and you will see the most brilliant colors. Reds, Oranges, Pinks, Yellows, Greens. So many days with rain where the trunks turned pitch black to make the colors pop.
I have never seen a more beautiful fall! The colors were brilliant for a very long time. We hit the peak in so many different spots this year. The UP, Petoskey, Grand Rapids, Lansing and Saginaw County has been the longest ever.
We haven't had very good color for the past several years. And if we did see it the leaves only lasted a day or two. Last year everything was very brown and dark yellow. So maybe that is why this year has seemed so extraordinary.
Thank you God, for the gift of fall. May we never ever tire of its beauty. Amen.
