Bradford Pear trees at peak in Shenandoah Valley

Bradford Pear trees in the Shenandoah Valley are at full peak ... and they are gorgeous. A single tree may have four different-colored leaves on it ... green, gold, red, and burgandy. They are beautiful and are some of the last to turn. Most other trees have lost their leaves or they have turned a dull brown.

It has been a long colorful leaf season as we head into late autumn and prepare for winter. Wood piles are growing as folks stock up and ready themselves for the snow and cold weather ahead. Meanwhile, we can enjoy this last glimpse of beauty.

It is autumn in the Shenandoah Valley....
