There’s a chill in the air now and a heavy dew in the morning but the leaves on the trees are still green.  Up on the hill, the fireweed  is living up to its name as flame red leaves catch the sun and the seeds take flight on feathery tails, like wisps of smoke.

Amy’s theme for this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge is Colours of Autumn.  Apart from the fireweed (or rosebay willowherb) it’s a little early for autumn colour here.  So here’s a scrapbook of autumn colour, from past Octobers and Novembers.
