The leaves are showing off the transition between green and yellow.
Finally I realized what I was really seeing. The yellows are stunning, partly because they stand in contrast to the greens. An all-green world isn’t what autumn colors are all about. But neither is an all-yellow world. So I’ll take them together, in neighboring trees, and sometimes on the same leaf, often on the same tree.
This world is full of wonder because it’s full of color. Why limit ourselves and look for only one? I’m going to try to keep opening my eyes to the wonder around me that’s so easy to miss. I think my trip to the mountains was a little step on that journey.
