Crow’s Nest: Fall color peak?
By Daniel Barringer, Preserve Manager.
Certainly the red maples are at their peak this weekend, as are dogwood trees. Spicebush is turning a warm yellow.
We haven’t had a frost yet so when we do that may sharpen the fall colors, but it’s pretty great right now.
A weeping willow beyond the footbridge complements the backlit grasses of our meadows. Turfgrass is still bright green which makes a nice contrast with the fall color.
You can see a lot of color from our roadsides and I hope you take some time to enjoy it.
