Some more fall color from around the neighborhood. This time, a maple tree in the early stages of changing casts a vibrant orange across its leaves. Below, a mix of green and yellow in an oak.
I love the complementary qualities in both of these photos--the orange and blue and the green and yellow make me smile.
Another sign of fall? Chrysanthemums. People pull up their pansies, begonias, and lantana and replace them with 'mums. I always think of 'mums as cemetery flowers. They're inexpensive and potted, you can buy them at the grocery store, and they stay in bloom longer than cut flowers. These pink ones where bordering the walkway of a home in the Takoma neighborhood.
