Though mighty oaks dominate the landscape around an old mill pond west of Delaware and yellow-gold lindens frame a streetscape on Duchess Avenue in Wortley Village, some of the most eye-catching leaves I’ve seen this fall, in my opinion, are in my neighbours’ yards and in my own side and back yards.

I can look out a side window to see this fire engine red Japanese Maple on one neighbour’s yard.
These orange berries (on a Mountain Ash?) are just a few steps farther away.
One of the brightest (and initially the smallest) displays of red is visible over my side fence in another neighbour’s yard.

One doesn’t have to travel far to see amazing sights, though I admit, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
