Virginia Street, Hopkinsville, KY
I've been waiting for them, and they've finally arrived -- the golden days of autumn. We had two cold nights with a few spots of light frost a few days ago. Suddenly, all the trees are showing their autumn colors.
I love this time of the year. I hope we have an extended season of clear, cool, calm days, so the leaves can drop from the trees, one by one.
I stopped along Virginia Street in Hopkinsville (KY) to take this photo. The Gunn House appears in the background at left -- an 1890s structure with fancy, jigsawed trim and a small tower.
