Falling Friday - These are Its Colors Bright Red and Yellow

Today, I will take a break from my Falling Friday (seniors falling) to talk about a nicer type of fall - autumn.

I work in a downtown of about 47,000 people, in a small city, Binghamton, in upstate New York.  We have our share of buildings (some being restored, others still vacant and waiting for a better day.)  But downtowns are more than buildings.

Many of my readers do not live in areas with the kind of fall color we enjoy in upstate New York.  So, as a "thank you" for your readership, please consider this as a visual reward for your reading loyalty.

What kind of fall color can we find at noon on a sunny October day?
A downtown ginkgo, with its beautiful fan-like leaves.

Another yellow tree, perhaps a locust.
Near the Broome County courthouse.

Meanwhile, only a couple of miles away, the hillsides have colored up nicely.

And finally, for your viewing pleasure, a fiery tree on the West Side of Binghamton.

Do you want to see more fall color for my Local Saturday feature tomorrow?


  1. I love Fall and the colors, just not too fond of what follows.

  2. I have the same beautiful foliage around here in Maine. We even have a very similar "flaming" tree in our back yard! I never get tired of seeing pictures of foliage, so please do share more!

  3. Fabulous colour! And your camellia does look very healthy. Good luck with it over winter.

  4. These are pretty, thanks. The trees do change color around here, but not to the extent that they do back east.

  5. These are beautiful and a sight for sore eyes, for this Upstater now living in California. Nothing like autumn leaves in the Finger Lakes and Adirondacks...thanks for sharing!

  6. What beautiful colours. I never tire of seeing trees in full autumn dress. Yes, please. Show us more of our wonderful trees.
