Wednesday, Oct 18, 1882 The Autumn color is very tardy this fall. The hickory enclosing the view, which we call "Gertrudes tree" has only just begun to turn yellow but is changing rapidly. The elms and the maples in front of the house are hardly changed at all while the lindens are as green as mid-summer. Two trees on the street (maples) directly in front of my West window have turned a light orange. I want to see if trees take the same color each fall.
