Fall has been amazing this year in NW Oregon. There are few leaves left even now, but it has lasted longer than I expected. I noticed a pattern in the colors from Sept to November. The first leaves to change that I noticed were from our blueberry bushes; reds. There were reds of the Vine Maple near Mt. Hood. Then the yellows and that is when I thought it was almost over; but mid November there was a deeper yellow/orange; and that was like an encore wave.
