The Equinox (Leaf)

For the equinox, we went up to Indian Springs and took the longish hike up to Timberland Lake, which is a bog, in hopes of seeing the early bog fall colors, the brilliant reds or red and silver maple and all the gold of the tamaracks, but we were too late! The bog was naked. All the leaves and needles had already fallen. (Click image to view larger.) We also went to the conservatory Saturday. And yesterday watched a preying mantis catch a beetle.

The color was pretty peaked last week when I was up north delineating wetlands. Not too much going on here, although some of my birches are going yellow.

Definitely early signs of fall here, but I was really sad to miss the bog color this year. WAHN!
