There’s nothing I love more than a beautifully lit tree in the Fall. During the weekends when we don’t have much going on we all just hop in the van to take a little drive and see how the Fall colors are progressing.
One of the first places we check is Washington Park. It’s one of the few places in the area with a a huge concentration of maple trees that just glow when the time is right. For now we just have a lot of yellows and some oranges, the reds will come in soon though.
This is the Autumn Blaze maple tree we planted a few years back and it’s just stunning this year. If it wasn’t 50 degrees outside I wouldn’t mind sitting out there and looking at it for hours.
Next weekend we’re hoping to a take a drive down to Alton, IL and see the colors along the river.
