The beauty shop is open

This bulletin from the Times-News in the Blue Ridge Mountains of N. Carolina. Thanks to good summer rains and cooler temperatures, the stage is set for fall color.

Dogwoods, sourwoods and maple are already turning color. The maple, black gum and sourwood display a beautiful red while tulip, poplar, beech and ginko turn a pretty yellow.

Our little ginko just started yellow overnight. 

Trees in our county should really start turning next week. Higher elevations peak in mid-October. we are about 1,000 feet below and our burst should be about a week or so behind.

 Pictures soon.

I spent two Springs and one Fall in the mountains of western Virginia in the 1970s.

There are few things more beautiful that the Fall and Spring colors in the mountais.
