Fall Colors Come To North Texas

Having lived all over the world as a result of being both a military brat and then serving for 21 years on my own, I’ve been witness to the change of seasons in many states and countries.

I’m a huge fan of fall colors as the trees make their transition into winter. Colorado and New Mexico have their yellow Aspens, Montana’s Rocky Mountains were wonderful, but the best color I’ve ever seen were the Maple trees in the Northern Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.

Fall Foliage in Frisco Texas

Last week I was out listing a Short Sale property in Frisco, Texas and came upon a Silver Leaf Maple that reminded me of my time spent in Tupper Lake, New York after my father retired from the Air Force in the early 1970’s.

Rather than a bright red, the leaves were a shade of scarlet, but it was nice to see the color.  Sometimes you just have to stop and admire nature’s beauty. 

It’s been almost 35 years since I last witnessed the change of color in New England. Dallas, Texas is my home but it reminded me that I need to make a trip back one fall to take it all in again.
