The foliage is starting to turn, with yellows leading the way. It is hard to believe that these colors (except for the black) are the true color of the leaves, masked by the green of chlorophyll used to process sunlight into nutrients.
If we saw these colors every day, would we take them for granted?
But they are hidden most of the year, so during the few days the trees reveal themselves, we humans are humbled.
But not all color is bright.

What do you take for granted in your world?
