We had a long, hot, dry, crackly summer in my county. The result is usually a brown and crackly fall. But we have been blessed with more than 6 inches of rain in September through October and the colors of our fall have been awesome. The kind of awesome that means long walks in the woods, the awesome that inspires lovers and poets and it makes up for the hellish month of July.
We have had a pallette of reds that inspire.
Of course on your monitor depending on its settings and your mood they can look like lipstick, chile powder, paprika, or even rust!
