Autumn abounds

Maple trees create a colorful backdrop for the dried field grass.

It seems like fall arrived overnight or at least within the last few days. Maples, oaks, sassafras and other trees create colorful displays across Pennsylvania’s rolling hills.
The DCNR’s fall foliage report says the best color for our region is expected now through Oct. 24. The report can be found at .

Despite a few frosts, some summer blossoms have survived and are feeding the hungry bees. Warmer temperatures are expected this week, but a change is in the air.
