1 One early morning, I took this photo showing the early fog on my farm, along with the changing autumn colors and the layer of frost on the grass.
2 This view from my terrace parterre shows the beautiful reds and oranges of this year's fall changes.
3 Here is one of six weeping hornbeams, Carpus betulus 'Pendular', with the dense morning fog behind it.
4 Looking just above - a glorious sky showing what appears to be a plane's contrail. A contrail, or vapor trail, made of condensed water, is a long, thin artificial cloud that forms behind aircraft.
5 Here was a view of the sky from my cutting garden. The trees below look like silhouettes.
6 The autumn changes of the weeping willows in one of my hayfields.
7 Here, my young yellowing linden trees against the most stunning changing color of the pin oaks.
8 The glossy dark green leaves of the pin oaks turn this russet reddish color in autumn - so pretty.
9 The allee of pin oaks has grown so tall. These trees really hold onto their leaves.
10 These pin oaks, Quercus palustris, have done so well here on my farm - so easy to grow and maintain, it is a popular landscape tree.
11 The dark green color of the boxwood looks so bold against the orange and red of the autumn colored trees.
12 The American beech tree grove offers a beautiful autumn show every year.
13 I just love the changing colors of the season - American beech, Fagus grandifolia, is native to the eastern United States and Canada. It is a deciduous tree with smooth gray bark, which you can see here if you look closely.
14 Here was my linden allee - soon, these trees will be bare of leaves.
15 Until then, a most gorgeous color of yellow remains. Lindens, Tilia, are also known as basswoods, and have sturdy, straight trunks and profuse foliage. These trees create such a lovely walkway - I wish it was longer.
16 The beautiful Japanese maple woodland - it is full of fall colors.
17 This grove becomes more and more beautiful as the years pass.
18 Such a range of color - from dark burgundy to bright red and even pink covers the area. These trees are so pretty on top of the yellow and brown layer of leaves.
19 The young Japanese maples can be seen far into the distance. The grove is developing so nicely.
20 Japanese maple, Acer palmatum, includes hundreds of cultivars with countless forms, leaf types, and sizes - but they all blend so well with any companion plants and trees.
21 I like to stake my young maples to protect them from any equipment being used in this area.
22 I love how the Japanese maples look under the canopy of tall maples.
23 A glorious view of another one of my hayfields with a dramatic sky above.
24 A look at the winding carriage road leading into my fields.
25 Such beautiful colors of fall.
26 Here were the weeping willows swaying with the fall breeze - these majestic trees are beginning to fade for the year.
27 More glowing, yellow foliage along another carriage road.
28 A view across one of my paddocks - some of the trees are already bare.
29 My south paddock looking across toward the stable and the chicken coops.
30 A relatively new allee of linden trees between my south and southeast paddocks - I am so happy with how it is growing here.
31 The russet feathery foliage of the bald cypress grove, Taxodium distichum.
32 The tall white pines on the left look so majestic through the seasons.
33 One of my dear Friesians enjoying the cooler, fall weather.
34 I get so many compliments on the fencing - it is antique spruce fencing I bought in Canada, and it surrounds all my paddocks for the horses, ponies and donkeys on my farm.
35 A view of the carriage road heading from my stable to my house - soon the autumn leaves will all give way to bare winter branches.
36 What does autumn look like where you live?
