The First Day of Fall on the Creek. The creek was full of fallen leaves yesterday, on the first day of fall--a few were bright reds or oranges, but most were yellows, browns and greens. We'll get brighter colors as cold nights and bright sunny days cause a waxing at the connections points and a using up of the chlorphyll still stored in the leaves. This will expose the carotin and xanthophyll for yellows, reds and oranges. Photo by Mary Stebbins
