Backyard Color

Today the red oak in the backyard is probably at peak color. Never in the years since I planted it has it been quite this vividly fall like.

The funny thing about today is that the temperature is already at 76° and rising. It’s breezy and partly cloudy. Yesterday it was misty, foggy all day long with temps hovering in the 60’s. Just looking at it from the window, it looked like winter all day long…At least until you opened the door and stepped outside.  Such is the weather along the Texas Gulf Coast.
