Here in Northwest Arkansas the fall colors begin to appear around mid-October and peak before the second week in November. This year Halloween week-end is supposed to be the best time to see the fall colors. The first hard freeze of the year was on Halloween when temperatures dropped into the mid-twenties. In honor of the season, even the Bald Cypress "Dress Up" in their best Autumn attire.
When the foliage decides to get all dressed up for fall the result is eye candy for every one. Whether you view the tree from a distance or get up close and personal, the colors are just wonderful.
While most of us associate a cemetery with all things spooky, the beauty of fall colors invades even this final resting place.
Trick or Treat
When Halloween rolls around there are no tricks. The fall foliage is always a treat for the senses. Often times the skies are crystal clear and provide an incredible background for the colors of the season.
I think that is is probably my favorite tree in all of Benton County, Arkansas during the fall. It is nearly perfectly shaped, it sits alone in a pasture, and when it decides to put on it's fall outfit, the show is spectacular. This year is the best that it has looked in three or four years partly because we have had ample rain, which means that the grass is still green on Halloween. Have a blessed Sunday and as we say here in the South, "Happy Fall y'all!"
