I visited my place again and noticed a few noteworthy changes in the vegetation. The first thing that caught my eye was that what had previously been a stag had fallen onto the ground! I was shocked, but as I thought about it more I realized that that tree was a goner anyway. Another difference was that there was a lot more leaf litter on the ground, mostly brown and yellow leaves. The leaves that were still in the trees were almost entirely yellow, last time they were mostly green. Another beautiful sign of fall.
