It has been pretty gloomy around here since our return from Jasper. After a glorious end to September and beginning to October, the weather took a decided downturn and turned cold and cloudy. We all saw it coming, but that did not mean we had to like it. On returning from a short trip to get groceries on October 18/20, there was a rare moment of bright sunshine. As I was putting the car in the garage, my photographers eye caught the rays of October sun, glowing through the few Amur Maple leaves remaining on my lawn.
By the time I got the camera and came back outside, the gloom had returned, but, later, when the sun did reappear, I managed to snap these shots.

Once alive, now all but dead,
glowing with bright colour red,
laying there, all discarded,
in sunlight, quite half hearted.
Poor drab grey Amur Maple.
I’d reattach, if able.
