My maple trees are turning red and orange and the redwood trees are showing their colors as well. Yes, even the redwood trees show an orange colored leaf that is deep in the branches and falls over everything when the first rains come. When that happens the road coming up to the Farmhouse and also Comptche-Ukiah Road is lined with duff. Cars driving over it create a roadway that looks like new fallen snow except it’s orange. Very pretty.
When the Farmhouse garden was planted soon after the house was finished I planted two Red Maple trees which are both at least 30 feet high now and this time of the year they are quite spectacular.
