Only a few leaves cling tenaciously to this tree once brilliant with varying shades of red, brown and green, but one by one the wind and the rain will soon strip it bare. My house overlooks this natural park where the kids play, dogs romp, and summer neighborhood block parties are traditional. This year, the foliage was stunning, almost blindingly so, with the afternoon sun illuminating the leaves. I am grateful that I could gaze out on this beautiful sight.
