Loving Autumn

Being from Southern California the four seasons was something I never experienced until I moved here to the Ozarks.
Now, one of my favorite things here is Fall.
Fall is so beautiful with all the brilliant colors.
Here is a peek into our backyard.

Kevin planted this tree about ten years ago from just a little sapling. It's a red maple and this is the first year it's ever changed colors. Usually the leaves just dry up. turn brown, and fall off. I love it. It's right outside the front door and the first thing I see when I drive up.
Although, I don't know why the leaves aren't red?
