I'm gonna miss this

This is a view from one of the windows in my office. I spend a lot of time looking at this tree while negotiating settlements, comforting clients, and just daydreaming. Most of the year, its' leaves are a lovely green but this is the time of year that I enjoy the tree the most. The color of its leaves command center stage to the surrounding dull brown landscape. Of course, the pic does not even begin to capture the brilliancs of its orange-red leaves. I am saddened by the thought that the leaves are beginning to lose their luster and fall to the ground. Most likely, this time next week, I will be staring at the feed store through the tree's naked limbs.
