the richest reds and golds

autumn leaves

Calling all of you who have been here for more than four years: have you noticed that the autumn colors in Seattle grow richer every year? When I first moved to this area, back in the 1980s, I loved the change in seasons (having come from banal LA, where it’s perpetually one season–blank and warm). But I bemoned the lack of colors, like the ones I saw in New England travel brochures. That’s okay

    My theory is because it is getting colder each year. The cold air is what causes the leaves to change colors. It is 5 degrees cooler this year than avergae (as of last week). This is my crackpot theory.
