So far this fall, our weather has been milder
than in recent years. That is such a blessing.
Last winter was prolonged and miserable,
with temperatures plummeting in early autumn
and not rising until late spring.
Even so, the trees know it's time for
their torpor; leaves are falling like rain.
These ginkos have created a golden carpet
at the entrance to the Massachusetts Avenue
shopping area, just off downtown Indy.
