End of the Fall Colours

Most of the leaves are gone now, and the world outdoors is so different, but until a few days ago lots of trees still had their colours.  This maple was bright yellow, top to bottom, but the basswoods in the background are now bare.

And finally the oak leaves have turned, a deep brownish red, a rich colour in the sunlight.

Meanwhile, the silver maples with their deeply cut leaves are a pale yellow.

Tree leaves aren't the only ones that change colour; hostas turn yellow in the fall too, and then rapidly disintegrate in the frost.
