One of the things that attracted us to our new house is the view off the back deck. Our house is situated on the top of a hill with wide views of the Plum Creek valley (just a hollow, really, or make that a holler if you're from around here) behind us.
The trees have been gorgeous this fall. There are beeches, oaks, pines, yellow buckeyes, sumacs, and a few maples spread over the hills. Golds, russets, dark greens, yellows, and a smattering of reds. Alas, we're to get some gusty winds today and tomorrow, so much of this color will be stripped from the trees by the weekend. Beauty never lasts forever.
