Fall is in full swing here at Sawbill.

9/30/08 – Fall is in full swing here at Sawbill. Every day we notice a new tree that has shrugged off its summer greens in favor of pale yellow, rusty orange, or brilliant red. On my walk with the dogs a few days ago, I noticed that not only the deciduous trees are losing their leaves – the “evergreen” conifers are also contributing to the fall color.
This beautiful carpet of needles settles in around the rocks under a white pine down at the landing.
Cedars are also losing their interior needles, causing a soft rusty orange glow in the sunlight around the edge of the lake.
