We had an amazingly beautiful fall! This is the beginning of the first year in our new home, and we were very happy to discover that we have a LOT of color around our house and through-out the neighborhood.
There are a variety of maples along our street. We have one right next to the driveway. The city has had plenty of forethought in mixing up the specific species of trees along the street, so we had quite the display. Our neighbor’s beautiful gold leafed maple just lost it’s leaves this past weekend, the last to go.
A tree was removed from the parkway before we bought the house. We hope to negotiate with the city on the choice of plants to be replanted. We’d be happy to go halves with them on the cost, if we get some say as to what is planted. Will they work with us? Who knows, but it’s worth a try. Meanwhile…winter, here we come!
