colors of autumn

The maple in Turkey Thicket is the first to show color. 

Today I went to cast my midterm vote then I walked home from the poll with my camera on an urban nature walk. The trees are still turning colors, some were brightly colored.
I entered the woods of Fort Bunker Hill park, once a dirt fortress during the civil war built to guard this capitol city.  Now it is a wooded parkland over looking parts of Brookland.  Other parts of the walk included a few street side trees and flowers. 

Fort Bunkerhill 

This park is only a single square block in size but it is a real retreat from the city and right near the Monastery gardens another place I enjoy walking and admiring flowers and trees.
