late but lovely autumn foliage

We didn’t get the robust array of autumn foliage colors here at Cucumber Alley and Washington Avenue that we’ve enjoyed in past years. But, subtle colors and thinning leaves nonetheless offered lovely scenes, as you can see below. (Click on a tile in the mosaic for a larger version.) The pictures were taken on October 30, 2019. 



 . . the view south from Cucumber Alley has lost some of its glory due the removal of several trees that glowed in autumn just a few years ago:



A few days later, we had some minor flooding at the end of Cucumber Alley. The Mohawk River rose very quickly on November 1, with water filling the rear yards at the end of the Alley and reaching the top of its bank along Riverside Park. On November 2nd, the lower yards of both 1 Cucumber Alley and 4 Cucumber Alley were still under water, as you can see in this collage.



  1. Excellent! Beautiful!!

    • Hello, Scott. Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the kind review.
