I love the magnificent colors of fall up north. Do you have pictures you want to share?

Gorgeous. It doesn't need to be fall for beautiful colors in the south!

This was the "mama maple" in my back yard, October 2019. We were cleaning up after selling the house, so there's some "stuff" in the yard like that ladder.

Another shot of Mama Maple in the autumn, and contrast to a February snow.

BTW those are sugar maples. The Mama Maple is literally the "mother" of all the others in our yard, and the woods behind the fence. She's around 200 years old, 4 stories high, and if I had tapped her and boiled the sap to syrup she would've yielded around 2 gallons per year. To get an idea of her size - that little white thing in the circle around her is an antique enamel farm sink perched on a restored park bench. It came from behind our fence; our property used to be a farm in the 1700's and was subdivided into a suburban neighborhood around 1945. The squat little pillars are actually pieces of tree trunks from trees we had to have cut down. There was a big cherry-blossom tree, a couple of sumacs (true sumac, not poison sumac), two Kentucky Coffee Trees (no idea how they got there but whatever), and a smaller maple from a house down the street. Everything there - including those tree trunks - are totally dwarfed by Mama Maple. You could stand two people on one side of it, and someone on the other side looking, wouldn't see the people at all.

"Mama Maple" Had to look up if that was an actual species!

I'm not a fan of snow but that winter picture is stunning.
