Thursday morning was revealed gradually in the fog.
We saw this many times over the years. Our development was created by an Englishman (Laurence Nilsen) and carries such English names as Charleston Riding (Riding: an English country subdivision), Mews Lane, Box Hill, Leith Hill and so on. So, I used to kid my wife on foggy mornings by saying that we’re out on Yorkshire’s Charleston Moor and we must beware of the hounds.
But, the fog enhances the last of the color. That red maple is the prettiest tree here in the fall. It was the root stock for a graft of a Japanese Maple which died many years ago. The root stock sent out some shoots and I pruned to one and it became beautiful. Within two days the leaves left, and in three more days so will I.
