The last gold dazzles as beech, poplar, tamarack, and the ancient Chinese tree, ginkgo, have their day. This final color turns my thoughts to Chickering Bog or other wet locations for tamarack, or larch, as it is sometimes called, and has me scanning wooded edges and hillsides for that pop of yellow that is likely beech or poplar. When sun and leaves combine there is alchemy. Soon enough we will have time to adjust to the subtle palate of late fall, but for now we are still rich with color!
