Autumn Moves into Widener on the Maple Trees

September 16, 2010

Every morning I walk down the hall from the University Relations office on the first floor of Old Main to the small room shared by the copy machine and coffee maker.  While my cup of coffee brews, I look out the window at one two maple trees on the edge of the Memorial Field.  This week I noticed the first signs of autumn in the treetop, a tinge of yellow and orange in the otherwise green leaves.  Over the next few weeks the leaves will transform into the brilliant hue you can see in the photo used for the masthead of this blog.  While the campus cherry blossoms of spring are resplendent, I like these two maples and their first hints of fall.  — Sam Starnes, Editor
