Hobblebush on fire

Hobblebush on fire

Race Brook Falls Trail. Southwest Massachusetts.

We did a day of clipping and maintenance on this trail and given that my hands were full with tools photography took a back seat.

On the way down it was easier to take some pictures and the sun was lower and so, it was top-lighting the hobblebush leaves, some of which have started to turn (ugh). Mid-August seems to be a tipping point for some plants and early fall is in the air. Dang, we were just getting into summer.
