About a week ago, we had colors like these in the yard:
The red on the right is a purchased red oak.  The mix of green/yellow/orange down the left is made up of red oaks that hadn't finished turning, a few that had, and--down at the far end the brighter yellow is Mexican buckeye.   At this time almost all the bright gold ash leaves had fallen and the maples were just turning.   Now the front yard red oak is bare; the back yard darkest oaks still have their rich wine-red leaves.
