Connie - there are some fall color photos in the first post of this thread ;-) It's been an unusually long fall this year ..... the first killing frost is usually in September.

Here are some more, these photos were taken the middle of October - most of the leaves have dropped now.

Acer platanoides is a bit late turning color so most years the leaves are still green when they freeze, it showed some really nice colors this year :-)
