Autumn foliage

With election season upon us, it can be hard to remember that you need to stop obsessively checking fivethirtyeight.com and look outside once in a while.* If you do, you'll notice that we are having one of the loveliest autumns in recent memory. Something about the weather over the past weeks and months has created an unusual profusion of autumnal coloration. Despite the rains of the last few days, there is still a lot of beautiful foliage in the neighborhood.

I'm especially amazed by these multi-colored trees with red, yellow, and green leaves, sometimes all on the same branch.
