While photographing the tree in our yard during September and October for the Autumn Changes post, I clicked a few extra pictures of some of the other trees in the yard. The photos don't capture the full beauty of the season, but it does help me remember the wonderful colors. This time of the year always reminds me of the little mouse, Fredrick, in Leo Lionni's children's book. Fredrick likes to save
