On Thursday morning I heard that we were in for a lot of rain and wind over the next several days, so I was afraid it might be my last chance for color before all the leaves started blowing off. I went back to the Metropolitan Market parking lot, where some maples were already going bald compared to last week. These maples are on the opposite side of the entrance from the trees I sketched then. Flowers, a pile of pumpkins and a few umbrellas gave the entrance even more color.
Sure enough, we’ve had mostly rain ever since, with high winds on some days. We’ve had a gorgeous month since Labor Day, but I think autumn has turned from pretty to precipitation.
